50. Permanent bases in Iraq is a very, very bad idea. The Middle East is not Europe or Korea.
THAT is the point. NO PERMANENT BASES was a rallying cry from John Kerry in 2004, and it has been the Democratic position ever since. We do not want permanent bases. We did that in Saudi Arabia, another holy land (Iraq has many Shi'ia holy lands), and the direct result was 9/11.

WE. DO. NOT. WANT. PERMANENT. BASES.

Oh, and ask the British how their occupation of Iraq went? And they supposedly had defeated the insurgency, yet still got high tailed out of there.
