my honest opinion
we should not have gone in the first place. yes we did some good by getting the big bad Sahddam's(can't spell) out of iraq. but we should not have gone against the UN which was put together because of WWI and WWII. if you think about it bush's reasons for this war have changed many times throughout the time we have had our troops there. he reminds me to a point of a modern day hitler (notice i said to a point!) and another point is that ok we got him out of ther we were supposed to be out of iraq a long time ago, with was in an agreement made between the us, the un and iraq's new government. why are we still there? our men and women of the armed forces need to come home now and let the iraqians fight it out between themselves, we did it hundreds of years ago they can too!
don't get me wrong i do support our troops i have family and friends that have been there and came back alive and friends that went there and came back in a box. yes people dying is the result of a war but these are needless deaths of americans and iraqis because of a grown man throwing a temper tantrum (to a point).

The troops need to be brought home right away, no need to wait. If we learned nothing from Vietnam, it should be the reality that staying will not alter the course of affairs in Iraq. It only protracts the bloodshed and delays the inevitable. We must get out of the way and let the Iraqi people sort it out.
As long as we are there, they will let us run the show. It's time to take off the training wheels.

Think about the result of the troops leaving Iraq for a minute. Not just in Iraq, but in the entire Middle East.
First that will only make the militants bolder, since they will feel it was a victory.
Second now that they are bolder, do you really think that they are going to say we won, and take a break? They will move the battle ground from Iraq, right back to Afghanistan, and we will be as heavily engaged there as we are now in Iraq.
Third, that is exactly what Iran wants. As soon as we stop they are going to feel they can go ahead with their nukes and there is no one out there that can stop them. Do you really think they are building them for electricity only? Want to bet they use them to threaten Israel? Ready for a real big war

The war is not over, so I think they should stay until all the odds and ends have been straightened out. We cannot leave a country in turmoil and then say it's done. Likewise, we cannot elect a president and then tell him we will not support him in his decisions because of internal power motivations or interests. Chinese have a saying, when we find our situation today why do we start in the first place?.

The war has been lost. The civil factions are fighting over political control, religious differences and territory. There are reports of massive suicide bombings, even against Shiah Muslim pilgrims. There is no government. It is time to pull out. No way Bush can create a democracy out of this mess. It was a bad idea from the start.

The Coalition Forces need to stay, to fulfill the promises that were made to the Iraqi people!
Democrats can demand all they want, but that does not mean they are going to get everything they want.

i think they need to extract them sooner, because its a pointless war, honestly Bush needs to worry about the US not the other countries, while hes worrying about Iraq, the US is gettting bad, with jobs,health care,and economy.

I'm all for it, after the Iraqi government is stable and able to defend itself. Placing arbitrary deadlines does not accomplish that.
