Well at least the Iraqis will get all those multibillion dollar enduring bases for all their trouble. Of course that won't make up for all the carnage we caused. I won't believe we're actually going to leave untill I see the last troop drive away.

Why when we first attacked Iraq, did we protect the oil installations and leave the munitions dumps unguarded? Looking back maybe our priorities were a bit off?

Not by chance for sure.... We wanted violence to continue to allow us to be there Forever!!!!

US "troops" out. Ok. But not the 130000 non-military -- intelligence staff, private contractors (of many types) working for US federal units (-- state department, pentagon, etc., etc.).

IOW, will be there in Iraq for the next 100 years, bro....

I'm pretty sure the American people want the U.S out of Iraq too so let the countdown begin.

So the oil companies get a large % of the Iraqi oil revenues, Iraq itself gets a big percentage of the oil revenues, and "we the people" get only flagged draped coffins and disabled vets (oh yeah the disdain of the Iraqi people). And the winner is of this war is.....Exxon

It must be that time of the month again. Nouri is like clockwork in his denunciation and repudiation of the U.S. He must want his allowance again.

Like the US has any intention of abandoning its massive military infrastructure in Iraq, regardless of what the Iraqis want. If the al-Maliki government continues to press the issue it will simply be found to be "facilitating terrorists" and subsequently replaced. Expect a resumption of full scale insurgency in Iraq if this happens, or if 2012 rolls around and the US military is still there. There will have to be more "stop-loss" or other BS, maybe draw some troops from Afghanistan so that another "surge" can make a complete mockery of Obama's "withdrawal" "No one loves armed missionaries; the first lesson of nature and prudence is to repulse them as enemies." ~ Robespierre

Are you Insane??? The folks you should be worried about are the one that keep building in land that is not theirs, that we have freely given nooxs to.... That thub their noses at our wishes... That know that were we to stand against them that they could use those nooxs against us.... Do you know history or politixs at all??? Do you realize that we are doomed???? At our own hands mind you......

IT'S AN EMPIRE, NOT A REPUBLIC!

Late 70's -- Bush Sr as head of C I A creates team B analysts to artificially inflate the Soviet "threat"

Early 80's -- US organizes radical Muslims in Afghanistan. BinLaden is a key money conduit.

1989 -- Berlin Wall falls, Soviet "threat" disappears -- peace threatens the US Empire and its bloated military spending and worldwide network of garrisons. A new "enemy" is needed.

1991 -- little defenseless shiekdom of Kuwait dares to slant drill into Iraq despite Iraq having fought a border war with Iran.

1991 -- after years of economic, military and intelligence cooperation with the Sadam regime, Sadam believes he gets the green light to take Kuwait after Bush's ambassador to Iraq does not communicate US opposition to such action.

1991 -- Sadam is stabbed in the back by Bush. A Muslim enemy is found -- and it has alot of oil.

1992 - Saddam's forces are routed out of Kuwait but Iraq is not invaded.

1992 -- Bush encourages Iraqi's to overthrow Sadam, but when they do, Bush allows Sadam to violate the No Flight rules in order to crush the uprising. Apparantly Bush wanted Iraq on his terms, not the local's.

1993 -- Bush loses to Clinton after fellow Texan spoils Bush's 2nd term.

1993 -- soon after Bush would have been in office for his 2nd term, the WTC is attacked, but not successfully, by the nephew of the 9 1 1 "mastermind". Would Bush Sr had used Jr's playbook if President?
