    How long should we stay in Iraq? Note: Poll is only about Iraq, not Afghanistan.

    Depends how you define "stay".

    I would say that US influence will be there long after any "troop withdrawal".

    Probably about as long as we have stayed in Japan or Germany. We would use some permanent influence in that part of the world. Its no longer convienent to ignore that part of the world.

    We should never have been there to begin with.

    Leave now. Not 5 minutes from now. Now.
