I think this opinion is a little shortsighted. I agree we should be bringing the troops home. I agree with what Bush had to say. I don't think we can just say, "Everybody come home now."

How much training do these Iraqi's need and how long does it take? I know nothing about this, but it seems to me more of the Iraqi's should be trained by now. Perhaps I'm wrong. It does appear as if the surge has had some effect, I'm not noticing as many troop attacks and deaths as before.
Its hard to have an informed opinion because all we get is from the press, on both sides, and as with most things the truth lies somewhere in between. Then I say we draft randomly "x" number of ordinary citizens and investigate this whole clusterfuck from beginning to end. They should have the power to press charges, assess penalties, make changes and ask hard questions.
Put the constitution back together again. Hold some people accountable. The last people we need running the government are politicians. They are not responsible to the people anymore. We need to make them accountable. - Taking off his rose colored glasses he hits submit.
