When should the US leave Iraq?
Issue:The war in Iraq was a bit of a surprise when we should have been going after bin Laden. It seemed, initially, like it was going to be over quickly. The initial motivation, Weapons of Mass Destruction, turned out to be dubious, at best. The US had the rest of the world on its side after 9/11. Not so anymore. The countries who support US efforts in Iraq are leaving and/or reducing their already relatively small forces.
Belief:While it makes sense not to give the opposition an exact date of departure, it's not clear that it would matter at this point. Is progress being made? Given that the US started this, there should be some obligation to finish - or at least try to leave things better than they were(?) Please comment below.
