We're never leaving Iraq

It appears that the Bush administration wants to keep our troops in Iraq forever. Even the Iraqis want us out, but our side is insisting that we have a permanent presence there, along with immunity for our troops and contractors from any criminal acts they may commit. I'm not saying that our beloved troops would commit any crimes against the Iraqi people, but I wouldn't necessarily rule it out for the private mercenaries we have working there.

"The Americans are making demands that would lead to the colonization of Iraq," said Sami al-Askari, a senior Shiite politician on parliament's foreign relations committee who is close to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. "If we can't reach a fair agreement, many people think we should say, 'Goodbye, U.S. troops. We don't need you here anymore.'"

It's time to get our troops out of combat there, and the Bush administration seems to be hell bent on preventing that from happening in order to justify their endless war against a country that we had no business being in in the first place.
