Believe me Richard, a number of us liberal Democrats are not happy with the Iraq withdrawal plans & think we should get the Hell out of there ASAP! (I understand the political pressures that President Obama faces in trying to end our mistake in Iraq, while not alienating either side to badly it would prevent his economic & other programs from being passed in Congress. Personally, I don't believe he has a chance of ever satisfying the Right Wing & should just discount their support for ANYTHING he does.(I do believe he is naive in that regard) He should pull out of Iraq IMMEDIATELY & get our NATO allies to REALLY fight with us in Afghanistan or pull our troops out of there too! (Afghanistan killed the Soviet Union & will be the death of us too, if we fall into the same trap!....Leave a residual force in the area that can swoop in....... kill Al Quieda & Taliban terrorists....& then Swoop out!!
