They are saying that one of the major things that got Obama the nomination will likely not be a realistic plan.

This is part of Bush's fault, as he went into a country that we knew nothing about socially. We knew nothing about the tribal hatred of each other, and the violence that would of occured between them. John McCain was the one that sold it as they would all feel liberated, and love the US, and everything was going to be fine.

This is a difficult decision on how to end this without creating mass chaos over there. Whoever has to do it, be McCain or Obama, are going to have on hell of a job to perform.

Obama's plan won't work, but staying there for 100 years like McCain proposes will?

I think every American from the far left to the far right would like to see less money put into Iraq and put back into America.

I feel we can't leave Iraq though unless it is secure, and that is a major challenge.
