If Iraq asks us to stay, we're staying past the end of the year.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates: "There is certainly, on our part, an interest in having an additional presence. And the truth of the matter is, the Iraqis are going to have some problems that they’re going to have to deal with if they’re—if we are not there in some numbers. They will not be able to do the kind of job in intelligence fusion. They won’t be able to protect their own airspace. They—they will not—they will have problems with logistics and maintenance. But, it’s their country. It’s a sovereign country. This is the agreement that was signed by President Bush and the Iraqi government. And we will abide by the agreement, unless the Iraqis ask us to have additional people there."

Gates Warns on U.S. Withdrawal from Iraq

So glad I never have to see one of these again. Or drive in one. Or have to come back walking from the chow hall in one....etc. Sandstorms suck. 4 years over there. That was enough for me.
