A phased withdrawal makes the most sense, sending a few home each day between now and the deadline. This should be followed by withdrawing from Afghanistan and Uganda, as well as closing our roughly 700 bases outside of the the country. We simply cannot afford to spread ourselves so thinly any longer and it damages our image abroad. I believe we need a Department of Peace as Dennis Kucinich suggests. Basically, it would be like a cross between the Peace Corps and the Army Corps of Engineers.
US will never pull troops out of Iraq - at least not completely. US did not go into Iraq to create the largest US embassy in the world in Iraq and then leave it empty.
The plan is a strategic 'We Stay for ever' and control the region. They will play the political mind games for as longs as they can with - they are only under a little pressure now since the Occupy Wall street movement is gaining momentum and if it continues then you will see BO declare some solders will be taken out but a huge number will remain.
There is nothing stopping BO from pulling all US troops out of Iraq over the next 6-12mths (the excuse of Iraq being unstable is just that an excuse) the country since the occupation has never been stable and it will never be stable until the Western powers stop meddling in other peoples affairs for petty gains.

With the news that a further 8 UK service personnel have died in Afghanistan in the last 24 hours it means that deaths in this war now exceed those due to the Iraq conflict. As a result calls are increasing for the troops to be pulled out. What are your views on the matter?

Does Obama own the coming Iraqi Islamic Republic?Obama claimed victory in Iraq. Iraq is teetering on the brink of a civil war that Muslim extremists will win. Does Obama own the collapse of Iraq since he has removed all American troops and declared victory in Iraq?
