Army chief: US ready to be in Iraq 10 years

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Pentagon is prepared to leave fighting forces in Iraq for as long as a decade despite an agreement between the United States and Iraq that would bring all American troops home by 2012, the top U.S. Army officer said Tuesday.

Gen. George Casey, the Army chief of staff, said the world remains dangerous and unpredictable, and the Pentagon must plan for extended U.S. combat and stability operations in two wars. "Global trends are pushing in the wrong direction," Casey said. "They fundamentally will change how the Army works."

Please note the quote below from a hearing Condi Rice had with the "Senate Foreign Relations Committee" in October of 2005


But Ms. Rice said troop withdrawals had to be based on results, not arbitrary timetables. She declined a request by Senator Paul S. Sarbanes, Democrat of Maryland, to say whether American troops could be pulled out in 10 years, saying it was "not appropriate" to "try and speculate" about such matters.


With this new story coming about, there should be no doubt to the total engineering of wars by who ever it is that truely calls the shots. This war just like the major wars before are being fought in a manner to sustain combat rather than elimate opposition.

This story should be an eye opener for those who feel that what our government is chaos instead of very well planned out conflicts. We created this war for profit. The problem is so many people say it is because of oil but yet the profiting companies did not make their profits from the oil. Just think and research KBR/Haliburton.

Our rules of engagement have been so strickt, our troops can hardly defend themselves with out fear of being court marshalled. If we are going to fight a war we need to do it to win not do it to sustain a profit.
