Sort of watching NBC News--those ba**ards! Mid-2004 pull-out of Iraq?
Did a piece of Powell going to Iraq, mentioned that this fradulent administration is shooting for a mid-2004 turn-over to Iraqi self-rule!

Those bastards!

You can see what they're doing, don't you? They'll pull out NO MATTER WHAT and claim victory just in time for the 2004 election!

Don't let them get away with it!

2. I doubt if they'll have their oil contracts ready by then.
Do you think they can get a puppet government in place (that won't be killed) and oil contracts all set up to the tune that they can leave? US military will be there forever.

8. Doesn't matter what they leave behind in Iraq
the US puppet media will simply tell us how great it is over there now. Just like Afghanistan.

I can absolutely see this happening. It is Bush's* ONLY chance at re-election short of stealing it with rigged software. The thing is, if they pull out of Iraq just in time for the election, they will be vulnerable to charges of manipulating the entire war, from beginning to end, for political gain. I think we can make that stick.

Also, there will be huge repercussions when the troops come home. Lost limbs, lost minds, Gulf War Syndrome, ruined health, ruined marriages and relationships. I wish is wouldn't be so, but I fear it will. The public will see first hand the effects of this hellish war on our troops and the shafting the Vets get from the Bush administration.

3. mayB but given the current pace
of pissing off the GIs, they will have lost the military vote.

4. DON`T BUY IT!
Bush and Cheney will never pull out of Iraq, they wont let go of all that oil now that they got their hands on it.

5. But don't you think they'll try some phony pull-out?
Like claiming they've turned over power, etc., and really it will be the same mess, but they'll try to spin it like a victory???????

6. You nailed it.
That's how they do it. Cosmetic actions to cover up their failures or deceit.

9. oh yes, another F-18 landing to declare victory ....
and cut off all military correspondence so soldiers' families will have no way to hear the real truth of how much like Viet Nam the Iraq sitch is becoming.

:hippie:

7. Bush wants no deaths after mid-March for the election.
They are saying now things are going well and things are a big improvement to the Iraqis. No one has told the Iraqis yet things are better. I agree with the person about the oil contracts - they are going to have to work hard to get those signed by then.

12. Good luck on controlling that.
I have a great deal of faith in the tenacity and patriotism of the average Iraqi.

14. Not feasible to leave that soon..
Do you see them leaving Iraq in 9 months? They've been there now for 5 months already and its still a clusterfuck. Do you think things will be running smooth by June 2004? I don't. The shit is only just beginning to hit the fan.

15. yet Cheney is predicting asking for more $$ in Iraq
and the administration is saying, "We will be there as long as we have too be." I think if they pull out after all they have said and done in mid 2004 most Americans will see it as a political move--and ask, "why did we go in there in the first place?"

16. We have already began pulling out.
The troop numbers are down from over 150,000 to just over 110,000 already. We are out of there before the middle of next year at the rate we are going right now. My guess is that all the troops will be home by mid January. Bush and his minions just want to finish looting our treasury first. And they will suceed too.
