First I would say that I have to see this to believe it, but if it indeed happens I would say it would be a great relief to all our men and women that are currently serving in the military. A great move to bring stability to the region.

This is a gamble in some ways, and I'm aware of that despite not being completely for the war, but I also think, with the way things are looking in Europe, having a lot of our ducks in one basket again will pay off.

I would say that a pull out of troops from Iraq would strategically shiflt the thinking of Russia, right now they know we are tied up in both wars so they can act and talk accordingly. A significant withdrawal of troops combined with the already approved on end strenght of military forces should send a clear message to Russia that the U.S. is not going to comit the same mistakes they did after others military conflicts.

Although I personally believe this whole Russia/U.S. crisis is a complete joke.
