    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Okay, but whether we should have gone in and how soon we get out are two completely different and mostly unrelated issues. I don't think enough people understand that.

    The poll don't mean ****.

    It's the discussion it sparks that is the focus here.

    Well it looks like we are going to be staying for a long time. Don't listen to what any politician tells you about withdrawing all the the soldiers out. We won't and can't.

    So to address your question we are going to stay in Iraq for the next 30 to 40yrs I can imagine.

    Yeah, we ignoring the major problem in the world and that is Israel. Also we have always had troops stationed in the Middle East. But not in the large numbers we do now and that is only a catalyst for worse things to come.

    We should withdraw immediately
    Set a timetable and get out in about 2 years.
    Uhh where's the option for "We already HAVE a timetable, they'll be withdrawn by the end of this summer, and that's fine."
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Actually, only the combat troops will be out, but 50,000 will still be in and they include trainers and special ops. They should stay as long as it takes. Elections should prove interesting.
