Some in Congress Talk of Iraq Withdrawal
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=512&e=6...

~snip~


It's mostly from Democrats Edward Kennedy on Thursday became the first senator to say "we must begin" withdrawal but Republicans, too, expect the discussion to increase as an Iraqi government takes shape and Congress considers more billions of dollars for the war.


President Bush (news - web sites) won't set a timetable and Iraq's interim prime minister, Ayad Allawi, says it's too soon to talk about American forces leaving.


Indeed, just days before Iraqis vote for a national assembly, many in Congress are reluctant to even talk about a plan for withdrawal because there are so many uncertainties.


Still, both Republicans and Democrats recognize they will be under increasing pressure to answer the question of when American forces will return home. Polls show the public growing skeptical about the war no matter the outcome of Sunday's election.

2. Blair pulled the plug, and left the Boy King holding the leash.
Bullies never have the courage to act alone. His party is over.

4. Think About What You Just Stated
Now answer this question, if Iraq is right next to Iran, what would be the point of withdrawing from Iraq if they plan to invade Iran?

6. The bushies may be planning an attempt to "bomb Iran back
to the stone age" to paraphrase Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay. Of course, this has never worked, and will only turn Iran's hostility toward us into real action.

If U.S. troops are still in Iraq when that happens, they will be absolutely pounded by rocket and missle attacks and probably by many Shiites who now are leaving us, and the British, pretty much alone.

I'm not sure that the bushies really care about the troops as individuals, but they may realize that slaughter of our troops by Iranian rockets and Shiites might get them into trouble with the electorate.
