What do you see as happening if american troops leave the country, say over a six month organized pullout?


A power grab by not only the tribal leaders in Iraq, but in neighboring countries. It would be like taking Mark Furman, taping his hands and dropping him off somewhere special in South Central LA circa 1987.

I don't think we are going anywhere, which should worry Iran and Syria. I think you will see a slow troop build up, after some major attacks in Iraq, creating need for more security. After the troop build up, look a terror strike in America by someone tied to the frightened "Iranians". If we keep up this global tour of democracy, we will be hit again on our own soil.

The moment the troops are out, the Iraqi president will be dead and some extremist goon will take over.
The country is way to unstable to support itself, djeez, not even the US troops can controll them in any way.

Bush is the president of Iraq. What are you people talking about? Any other reps they get will still answer to Bush. It's no surprise that any Iraqi puppet gov would want the troops to stay.

The Shi'ites, knowing they'd be the majority, agreed to not asking us to leave. It will be interesting to see if the people pressure them into going back on the agreement.

President bush will never leave Iraq and he will never allowed an Iraqi government that will not be friendly to the US.
The Iraqi oil is to sweet. Bush and his cronies are waiting for Iraq to become more "stable" so the "privatization" of their national resources can begin.
To much money is involve.



We have capped oil wells in The USA that they haven't started to pump out. They are kept in reserves. So why would we want to control their wells?

Its called privatization the selling of the Iraqi oil rights to pump it out of the ground by American base oil companies, something that during the Sadam regime was off limits due to the oil in Iraq being a national resource.

Look at the niger valley oil and what happend to their people. It took many lives and a law sue to the Texaco before they took care of the civil right violations and the destruction of the land where texaco was pumping oil.

If you want links I will provide them for you.

Yes one of the main goals for Iraq by the bush administration is privatization of its oil.

Marg, I just hope that does not happen. The Iraqi are capable of working the oil wells themselves. We do have people who can offer help for better production. But I do not want private firms going in to cheat this nation of money. Thanks for the info, marg. Just hope it does not turn out that way.

1. Cheap source of petrol for many years to come

2. Military bases, military bases, military bases

3. Boot on neck of OPEC (Euro issue)

Here's a good article on my comments above:



THE ROVING EYE
Why the US will not leave Iraq
By Pepe Escobar

The contenders
The White House, the Pentagon and the neo-conservatives were forced - by Shi'ite leader Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani's brilliant brinkmanship - to accept these elections, in which a Shi'ite victory is assured. For many Iraqis, Sunni and Shi'ite, Washington's endgame is not withdrawal, but finding the right proxy government: only the naive may believe that an imperial power would voluntarily abandon the dream scenario of a cluster of military bases planted over virtually unlimited reserves of oil.
