Iraqis Signal They Want Us Gone In Two Years


by Steve

For those of you who are rightly skeptical that the Bush Administration would ever pull significant troops out of Iraq, read this:

In remarks today (Thursday) at a meeting with Mr. Rumsfeld, Iraq's national security adviser, Dr. Muwaffak Al Rubaie, said that there would be (a) large reduction in the American troop presence by the end of the year.
"Certainly at the end of this year, there is going to be a sizeable gross reduction in U.S. troops," he said, speaking at the opening of a meeting between senior Iraqi and American officials.
He added that within the next two years, "We hope most coalition troops will go back home."

I don’t think the Iraqis feel that “home” means our permanent bases.
