On Monday the Associated Press (AP) news decided to print this article on yahoo news about the Iraqi Army making plans just in case the inevitable happens which is a full withdrawal of the U.S. Military. In my opinion this is old news the Iraqi Army is always preparing for the withdrawal of U.S. Forces just as soon as they are fully capable of securing and defending there own country. It is articles like these from a left leaning news organization that empowers America's enemies to keep up the fight and continue full speed recruitment to the insurgency and terror groups working inside Iraq.
Keep in mind if the United States announces it will start a withdrawal of the troops it would still take approximately 9-12 months to safely withdraw 160,000 troops from Iraq. It will not happen overnight. It would be a phased withdrawal and I am not going into any specifics about the military but all you defeatist out there it's not going to happen so quickly as you all think. The day will come when Iraq can secure and defend it's own country and it just might take a little longer then what some have in mind.
