'We don't have an exit strategy, we have a victory strategy'
as posted by Simulacra
Wouldn't you think because of the recent elections an the 300,000+ peaceful Iraqi protest that these people are ready to take their country into their own hands and no longer require US supervision?
Victory over what might I ask Rumsfeld? We've instilled democracy in the nation. We've come to the conclusion that their are no Weapons of Mass Destruction. And we've removed Saddam Hussein from his dictatorship.
What else is there left to do? While Rumsfeld and his cronies are busy planning their 'Victory Strategy', American soldiers are dying because the Iraqi people simply want us out of their country.
So let me get this straight then, Sauron and AlwaysLearning, are you leading us to believe that the US will never leave Iraq, in that those 140,000 plus troops will remain indefinitely?
``We have to see the institutional capacity developed so that they can take over the security responsibility,'' Rumsfeld said referring to Iraqi Security Forces. ``As that takes place, the responsibility of the coalition forces will decline and they will be able to move away and leave.''

Rumsfeld clearly stated that ''We don't have an exit strategy'. How straight forward can that be? If you don't have:
A.)An Exit Strategy
B.)An Timetable for an Exit Strategy
