    Willy nilly, yes! Question is not when but how to exit "honourably."

    The Bush Administration realised long ago that Iraq is an impossible country to be transformed into a democratic showpiece to entice the rest of the Middle East.

    At first it thought that having defeated and then captured Saddam portrayed as the biggest evil there was, the whole of Arab or Muslim world would rejoice and hail America their saviour, to then embracing what America professed and proferred with enthusiasm.

    However, reality soon hit America hard and now it is paying with more and more American lives and wounded and maimed. It has discovered that America and its allies are not only not wanted but are roundly condemned and worse, the so-called democracy that Bush so very much wanted to see flourish is instead floundering. Even commanders of its mighty armed forces are viirtually saying the "war" cannot be won, not even with anotherr 40K troops joining the fray.

    The continued Ameriican presence will only lead to more deaths, of both Americans and the Iraqis. What the war has done has been exactly the opposite of what Bush has aimed to achieve. Now sectarian strife is a way of life likely to lead to the breakup of Iraq. Yet Bush still harbours the delusion that through his efforts he could bring about the desired change to democracy, bolstered by what he thought was a free and fair election. Up till today, a truly representative and effective government of Iraqis, by Iraqis, for Iraqis has yet to be formed.

    Because mighty America cannot openly admit defeat yet does not have any effective strategy to do better in Iraq, it has to seek a way out. It will be too shameful to signal "Mission Abandoned" having only too prematurely declared "Miission Accomplished." Bush and his advisors, civilian and military are, I am sure, having sleepless nights trying to exit Iraq, like asap.

    But the Vietnam debacle is still fresh in living memory, so packing off with tails between legs is not an option. The best it can now think of is to quickly pass military operations to native armed forces which are hastily trained but whose effectiveness and loyalty to the so-called elected Government are big question marks. Thus, for a long while to come, the US will continue to be mired in the Iraqi quagmire. There is no easy way out. I opine that withdrawal of Amerian troops will be left to lthe next adminstration.

    To compound the current problems, Saddam was sent to the gallows after a farcical trial orchestrated by America. The US could not wait to see the man hanged and hanged he did on the first day of a very important Muslim religious festival. This again shows how inept and shallow US thinking has been and will definitely not endear America to the Muslims, especially the Sunnis. Of course, the Bush Administration has very clear agenda why it wanted Saddam dead, what with the democrats taking over the two Houses soon and poor Bush having to appear 'good' with his New Year speech to the nation on the country's future direction, especially on the Iraqi misadventure and whence the troops might return home. All very trying and taxing.

    Blame the Iraqis for not knowing what is good for them, not appreciating all the 'good' that Uncle Sam has brought and worse, so binding America that even with the best brains in the country (if not the world), it finds that it cannot extricate itself. Yes the US will exit Iraq. If it could it would and it would not be soon enough too. Can any one help? Bush will only be too willing to bestow America's highest honour - the Medal of Honour - to anyone who can effectively show him the way, and the people of the US will forever be grateful too!

    I can tell you as someone who was in the military that it is highly unlikely there will ever be a complete withdrawal from Iraq. The number of troops present will be reduced, but as long as the Iraqi government does not force the US out there will always be a US military presence there. The Iraqi government is highly unlikely to want us to leave for the same reason no other country we occupy wants us to leave. The US military brings in income that is not created by taking jobs from the locals, and it creates a large number of civilian jobs to support the troops. Also all land occupied is leased from the local government, and soldiers aid the locals in events of natural disasters or other times when requested by the local government. The US military still has bases in many countries you are unaware of.

    I was and am against the war, but if we cut and run now, Iraq will be a lost cause and the 3000 dead was just fun and games, we need to pull back, build a perminet military-air base just to keep a lid on the area and stop Iran from flooding over the borders.

    other than that stay out of their civil war,

    probably a lot sooner than the security forces that are in Bosnia that were supposed to be home by Christmas. That was 1996 I believe.

    This war has become very, very unpopular in the USA. Bush seems determined to stay, but I think his replacement will remove US troops.
