    So how many decades would you have garrisoned troops there and what would it have cost your taxpayer ? The big difference between Iraq and the likes of Germany or Korea is that those indigenous populations actually wanted them there

    The bulk of Americans didn't read it though did they.

    Please post the BS that shows more than 2/3 of Americans believe Saddam Hussein was directly involved in 9/11 and why does that even matter.
    There ya go ....

    WE have housed troops in Germany for decades just like Korea and the cost is basically insignificant in the multi trillion dollar U.S. Budget. I find it quite telling what an expert you think you are regarding Iraq and what the people there want. You buy what you are told and nothing is going to change your mind.

    You don't even know what the American people want, so how can you assume they want to fight endless wars?

    Oh, great, a USA Today Poll thanks so much for the laugh and does it matter what the public read or didn't read? You obviously didn't read it. the facts are in the link, the resolution was posted. I suggest you read it

    How are the conditions in Iraq different today than in 2008 when Bush left office?

    The American people are tired of war.

    Yes but the people of Germany and Korea weren't planting IEDs and sniping at your troops every day so the cost of and extended stay in Iraq would be far from inconsequential

    You mean after the war was over... nvm
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You are missing the point. The fact is the American public didn't read it. They prefered to be led where the administration wanted them to go
