In judging a two-person singing contest, never award the prize to the second soprano having heard only the first.

Though let me say this, I don't consider the life of a person from america to be priceless relative to the life of a person from some other country.
One would hope after this people could elect and continue to elect a government that doesn't get us in such a mess again, but clearly that didn't happen after Vietnam.
Bottom line is, it would be great to get out ASAP, but do you SERIOUSLY think we can just pull out completely right now?

Toad, I beg to disagree. It has been mentioned and was the reason some democrats got elected. MOST realize that this is not a viable option. Blind support for this war by most republicans and some democrats has forced us in a near impossible situation. The only way this is going to get fixed is if both sides put aside their differences and work together. I remain hopeful, but only time will tell.I get all my News from FNC and right blogs, so I know I am fair and balanced.

The purpose of setting a time-limit is to give the Iraqi government and people an opportunity to prepare to assume responsibility. Otherwise, the Iraqis have no incentive to stop the gravytrain of billions of dollars pouring into Iraq (and in the pockets of leaders.)Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

MTA - i don't mind the IDEA of what a timetable is supposed to do - but look at the clear effect of it.... the enemy of a free iraq simply bides their time until an american pullout with an Iraqi army unready to defend the newly freed iraq...
That's the problem with a timetable.
And i believe they DO have an impetus to get things in order. In the form of terrorists trying to kill them. I don't think the status quo is quite cushy enough for them to simply sit back and let the good times roll...
Further, it's difficult to trust the motives of people who have undermined the war at every turn.Usually, terrible things that are done with the excuse that progress requires them are not really progress, but just terrible things.
