So, how long? It appears to be as long as it takes to ‘win.’

The situation in Iraq, as you know, has substantially improved in the last year.  And it gives us an opportunity to wind this up in an orderly fashion.  But also to wind it up in a way, carefully, so that we never have to go back.  The difference between what Obama wants, what Dan Seals wants and what I want is that I don’t want, I don’t think that a defeat of the United States in the Middle East leads to more peace.

  1. I would suggest that Kirk who is, I believe, an officer in the Navy Reserve seek out an assignment in Iraq. What nerve! Before people speak about victory and defeat in the Middle east they ought to at least define for us what those terms mean.

  2. Arch! You found my favorite picture. Don’t forget the one with Rummy. That’s my second favorite.

    McCain did,

    By January 2013, America has welcomed home most of the servicemen and women who have sacrificed terribly so that America might be secure in her freedom. The Iraq War has been won. Iraq is a functioning democracy, although still suffering from the lingering effects of decades of tyranny and centuries of sectarian tension. Violence still occurs, but it is spasmodic and much reduced. Civil war has been prevented; militias disbanded; the Iraqi Security Force is professional and competent; al Qaeda in Iraq has been defeated; and the Government of Iraq is capable of imposing its authority in every province of Iraq and defending the integrity of its borders. The United States maintains a military presence there, but a much smaller one, and it does not play a direct combat role.
