Long-Term Iraq Presence

John points out this interesting statement from Tony “pull the wool over America’s eyes” Snow about a “long-term U.S. troop presence” in Iraq:

President Bush envisions a long-term U.S. troop presence in Iraq similar to the one in South Korea where American forces have helped keep an uneasy peace for more than 50 years, the White House said Wednesday.

The comparison was offered as the Pentagon announced the completion of the troop buildup ordered by Bush in January. The last of about 21,500 combat troops to arrive were an Army brigade in Baghdad and a Marine unit heading into the Anbar province in western Iraq….

    Many have said the U.S. will NEVER leave Iraq.

    Oh well. Fuck em’ all.
