    So what did we change? The only thing I can see is Western oil is now back in Iraq for the first time in 36 years.

    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.

    Yes, I saw it already. I am pretty sure the tens of thousands of Iraqi citizens killed in our invasion and occupation, and the millions forced from their homes did not benefit and its yet to be seen how the remaining Iraqis may, or may not benefit. We won't know until there is no longer a military occupation there propping it up.

    Haven't you heard? There is no military occupation. There's just "trainers" left, no combat troops in Iraq.

    Yes, and the same constitution that banned religious political bodies. Now, it will be possible for religious organizations to form political parties.

    I doubt the 35,000 combat ready troops that still remain in Iraq would appreciate that slight.

    I wonder how long Iraq's "democracy" will last without US military and financial support.

    you may be correct, but i would not bet on it
    my speculation is that iraq will become an iranian satellite as soon as we pull out
