All Troops Out By 2010??

Iraq and the U.S. are near an agreement on all American combat troops leaving Iraq by October 2010, with the last soldiers out three years after that, two Iraqi officials told The Associated Press on Thursday. U.S. officials, however, insisted no dates had been agreed.

The proposed agreement calls for Americans to hand over parts of Baghdad's Green Zone — where the U.S. Embassy is located — to the Iraqis by the end of 2008. It would also remove U.S. forces from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, according to the two senior officials, both close to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and familiar with the negotiations.

The officials, who spoke separately on condition of anonymity because the talks are ongoing, said all U.S. combat troops would leave Iraq by October 2010, with the remaining support personnel gone "around 2013." The schedule could be amended if both sides agree — a face-saving escape clause that would extend the presence of U.S. forces if security conditions warrant it.

I think he cut and pasted that. But from what I hear there's not much need for combat troops. Time to let the Iraqis be their own men, and us try to put a little money back in the bank....... Better yet, let some extremely deserving American men and women come home and have a life.

And I would define combat troops as the ones in a zone where shit is trying hard to hurt you.

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand!

If we're in Iraq one day less than we were in Germany, I'll dress in a pink tutu and each one of you can spank me.

I don't see it happening either. How about a friendly wager?
