What better time to give a time for our withdrawl.

Rather than allowing the Partisans to think we are moving in thereby motivating them to attack we put the question to rest with a firm promise.

Doubts about our intentions are leading to the deaths of our troops, and others.

Digging in to long term bases spread around Iraq also does not help our credibility when we say we come as liberators, not occupiers.

The ambiguity coming from Bush has led many to believe that America will not leave unless the forces are thrown out.

Maybe they are right....

The criteria for the withdrawing of US forces from Iraq have been given and spelled out a number of times. The latest DOD October 2005 Report to Congress indicates that a timetable will be based upon the acheivement of determined criteria(s).

Criteria for Withdrawing Forces:

U.S. forces will withdraw from Iraq as their mission is successfully accomplished. As noted in the July report, criteria for withdrawing Coalition Forces from Iraq are conditions-based, not calendar-based. There is not a timeline or milestones that directly tie the drawdown of Coalition forces to increased numbers of capable Iraqi battalions. Drawdown will occur in a phased, gradual manner as Iraqi forces become capable of taking the lead within areas of Iraq and in concert with Iraqi progress in political and economic capabilities.

Website polls are not reliable at all.
If Fox News put a poll on their website you'd get totally different numbers.

Regular poll from zogby, Ipsos, etc.. are OK but not web polls.
