    It's certainly good news for Iran. The Islamic allies are starting to make their move,

    The point is, I doubt we're actually getting out. We may pull some troops from area A, but we're still going to be there. Troops, technology, military presence, everything else that goes along with massive interventionism.

    A true pull out is one in which we take our ball and go home. That's what I want.

    I'm dabbing at tears of joy. Now I'm gonna get busy praying for the soldiers in Afghanistan to be able to come home as well. That is a different situation in my opinion. Both the Taliban and Al Qaeda are still operating in that country and parts of Pakistan. Those two groups are responsible for killing thousands of Americans in New York and Washington, DC, and we need to eradicate that threat to our security before we leave.

    agreed, that country is a rat's nest.

    Well, I'm breathing a sigh of relief. I'm glad to seriously, really be out'a there. I do hope we retain some "base use rights" so that, should we need to return (hopefully not), we don't have to jump over hoops to go back.

    But if we did that then how would those who hold stocks in companies of the defense industry maintain their profit margins?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Which companies are you referring to?

    Do you really believe there will be no munitions used because "America's war" is over?

    Iran is already making its move and it appears that the fragile democracy in Iraq will be lost and all those lives and treasure will have been wasted and all, it appears, for strictly domestic political purposes.
