Okay people listen up!
We want the Iraqi army to be ready to take over before we leave. This is what Democrats and Republicans, including the Bush league, say. "When they stand up we will stand down." This is what we said for years in Vietnam too.
Anyway the point is that EVERYONE is planning to leave Iraq in a state that will require its army to maintain control.
So we invaded a nation whose army and security services were in control and we intend to leave a nation whose army and security services are in control. That's just great. Well done America.
Next time a President wants to waste a trillion dollars and kill thousands of citizen soldiers lets just tie them all to stakes on the mall in DC and set fire to a giant pile of cash. The ramification will probably be less and at least we could get it over in a weekend.
Iraq War is stupid, the deaths are needless, and the money is wasted. Hurray for America!
