It is very clear that al Maliki would like the US troops out of Iraq within 2 years and is close to the same timeline that Obama proposed. I
don't see how you can see it any other way.
If thats when their able to support themselves, we'll leave. The leap is to say this is the date we will get out. Maliki and most Iraqis want to get
on with their lives and know they need the US there until they are able to help themselves. Its simply a fact, so Obama can keep saying whatever he
wants. Its all politics.
- You are wrong on almost every point: FACT
I completely disagree and dont think you even really know what you're talking about. You're buying in to the politcal hype and not reading very
From your own article:
Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh on Monday said the government's "vision" is that most U.S. combat troops would be out of Iraq
by 2010. Asked whether that stance is part of the current negotiations, al-Dabbagh said, "No. This is the Iraqi vision.
As has been said countless times, we all want out of Iraq ASAP. The crux of the matter, is if Iraq's government can defend itself from all the people
who will want to topple them.
The Iraqis want the exact same time, which is why he said its a "vision" at a negotiation. They haven't decided exactly what they want or need yet.
Thats why McCain is actually the guy closer to the truth. Hes not gonna tell you some BS that we can get out in 16 months, if the facts on the ground
don't support it. Obama on the other hand, is willing to lie right to your face so he gets elected.
