    106K troops.
    For 20 years.
    Is a "longshot gamble."

    Would now be a good time to ask our national press why no one reports on the "enduring" (read: permanent) bases we're building in Iraq?

    Fellas, we're still in Germany.
    You really didn't think we'd still be in Iraq 20 years from now?
    The part about it being a "longshot gamble" is one man's opinion.
    Once upon a time, one or two in the current administration were of the opinion that this whole Iraq thing would be easy.

    Twenty years with the casualty rate increasing with each passing year?


  5. Yes, yes, I know, and the Vietnamese are now swimming at our base in Cam Ranh Bay. However, while we still have troops in Germany, we are not running Germany. This guy is talking about, essentially, a 20-year occupation.

  11. Let's be fair.
    There was a prominent Democratic politician of whom that could be said.
