Not even the Iraqis want any part of it. Even if he did sign such a deal, Obama should make it clear that he will be under NO obligations of any deals signed by Bush with Iraq!

You presume much.

The primary opposition to the agreement has come frm the Anti-American cleric al-Sadr.
U.S. officials increasingly see the criticism as driven by Iran through al-Sadr, who has called for weekly protests against the agreement. Al-Sadr has long opposed the U.S. military presence in Iraq.

Concerned that al-Sadr was scoring political points, mainstream Shiite and Sunni politicians began to speak out against the proposed deal too, distancing themselves from the deliberations for fear of being seen as selling out to the Americans. All that puts pressure on al-Maliki, himself a Shiite, as he tries to maintain ties to Iran while at the same time ensuring his support from the United States.
I suppose you would prefer the U.S. to waltz out of Iraq on Jan 21, 2009 and leave it to the Iranians?

If BHO becomes President and chooses to withdraw American forces from Iraq, plan on getting drafted if you're under 35.
Terrorism will escalate rapidly and America will need to mobilize in numbers never before seen.

Vote for BHO at your own peril.

OMG, I'm on deployment orders for OEF after BHO if elected will take office. I am now really thinking that our efforts there will be much tougher. Of course the Obama wunderlust rivals what seems to be a sense of intoxication. Really checking out the guy and the issues I just don't know what to think. I sure hope things work out, but the promised change and hope agenda ssems more laden with blind hope.

But Obama or any democratic candidate would not take a pledge to remove the troops within their first term. I say if we are going to get out then we need to do it vietnam once we decided to leave. I can see leaving anyone that there when we make up our mind to quit the war effort.My guess is teh Afgansitan is the next target of the insurgents ,
