    When I see a poll, I always wonder, who'd they ask?

    Somehow, I'd guess taking a "poll" in Iraq is less than easy these days.

    If we left, how long until Iran tried to take over?

    Its a little late to be thinking of that just now isn't it? Iran was not attacking Iraq before our war. If the Iraqis are not worried about Iran attacking them, then neither am I.

    American and Iraqi soldiers also staff joint checkpoints on all roads leading into town. Within the city limits, only Kirkuk police - a sometimes-volatile mix of Kurds, Arabs and Turkmen - are allowed to operate.

    The Iraqis have said they do not want us there, so apparently they are not worried about invasion from neighboring countries. So, why is it again that we remain there?
    My bad. I did not think we were still so postured.

    Unless plans change, we are out by the end of the year.

    Regardless of what happens, we did build a democracy that influences the region.

    What is your problem with London (APF)? That is the source of the news story?

    We won't know that until Iraq can stand on it own. Right now all we have is a successful invasion and military occupation by the most powerful military on the planet.

    We also have a democracy formed and run by the Iraqis. It may not last. But at the moment it is an example to the ME.

    It is not a democracy when it cannot stand against its own people without our military occupation.

    Egypt also had a democracy, on paper, just like in Iraq. And it is not going to stand against its people for much longer either it appears.
