The Obama-Biden Plan
Barack Obama and Joe Biden will responsibly end the war in Iraq so that we can renew our military strength, dedicate more resources to the fight against the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan, and invest in our economy at home. The Obama-Biden plan will help us succeed in Iraq by transitioning to Iraqi control of their country...
Judgment You Can Trust
In 2002, Obama had the judgment and courage to speak out against going to war, and to warn of "an occupation of undetermined length, with undetermined costs, and undetermined consequences." He and Joe Biden are fully committed to ending the war in Iraq.
A Responsible, Phased Withdrawal
Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe we must be as careful getting out of Iraq as we were careless getting in. Immediately upon taking office, Obama will give his Secretary of Defense and military commanders a new mission in Iraq: ending the war. The removal of our troops will be responsible and phased, directed by military commanders on the ground and done in consultation with the Iraqi government. Military experts believe we can safely redeploy combat brigades from Iraq at a pace of 1 to 2 brigades a month -- which would remove all of them in 16 months.

Guys tell me, is there any bigger deviation from conservative principles than building a nation from the fifth world tribesmen?

Why not abandon Afghanistn as well?
Good. Now Evil can update its day planner.
“Did he miss the big story the other day about the agreement reached between US and Iraq?”
He couldn’t care less about any agreement.
But BO promised “right away,” not 16 months. Code Pink will not be pleased.
Iran, Syria, Pakistan and MOST of the world's oil reserves are at play... and GOD's chosen people are at risk... so we should quit, surrender and come home. al qaeda will never attack America... the Oceans protect us! Maybe you can find a job in hussein’s administration.
Funny, Bush was going to have us out in 16 months as well.
What about the Taliban and al Qaeda in Iraq? Don’t we care about destroying them?
What is up with that dress? It looks like a black widow spider Halloween costume. That’s no joke!
