Now What Do They Say?

Say it ain’t so, Colin. How can you kick the Dems when they are down?

U.S. troops will begin leaving Iraq this year as the Iraqi army, national guard and police force take on a larger security role, Secretary of State Colin Powell said in an interview released Wednesday by the State Department.

Powell would not give a definite timetable for the troops’ withdrawal in the interview, conducted Tuesday with National Public Radio, “but with the money we’re putting into the growth of the new Iraqi army and national guard and police force, I believe that during 2005 they will be able to assume a greater burden, and with the assumption of that greater burden, the burden on our troops should go down, and we should start to see our numbers going in the other direction.”

Not a timetable for withdrawl? Yup. That way we can go and kick the bejesus out of some other terrorist supporting countries.

  1. Are you serious? You think that is really going to happen?

    Also . . . OTHER?

    That sounds about right. That was the same non-timetable Bush gave before we went in. “About two years until we start drawing down our forces.”


    Sure, others, like Syria, Yemen, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, parts of the Phillippines…..France, etc.

    I’m not sure why, but Grouchy’s video “Die, Terrorists, Die” comes to mind…

    Today I was asking Pops why we haven’t gone after Syria yet. He said, “just wait, it’s coming.” Sounds like he was right.

  5. It isn’t coming. Not after the mess that is Iraq. The public would not support it this time.
