Pulling Out Of Iraq

Believe it or not, I would like our troops to begin a pullout from Iraq sometime in the next 4-5 months. I've stated before that the United States military can't continue to hold the hands of the Iraqi military. They need to start standing on their own feet. But I seem to have made that statement on my old blog on Modblog, and MB isn't loading right now. It may have went out of service, I don't know. While they're doing some operations on their own, our troops seem to still have to lend a helping hand. I've also stated, on many occasions, that pulling out too soon would result in a mass slaughter, ala Vietnam. And that American troops were in Europe for ten years after Germany surrendered. So, I'm conflicted on this. I want out troops to start coming home, but in doing so it may lead to events that are too horrible to even consider. But don't take my word for it, Ayman al-Zawahiri is the one I'm getting my information from. So, on one hand I want our troops to start coming home and on the other I realize what may happen in doing so. It may come down to giving the Iraqi military an ultimatum. Get your act together before the end of the year, or face the consequences. I guess I've become impatient.

Alternatively, you could always... oh, I dunno... do what you're doing with Iran and drag UN troops into it.

It's not like they can really object now that you've decimated half the country, now, can they?
