No Timetables

Here's a big surprise: Bush sets no timetable for pullout of U.S. forces
U.S. President George Bush vowed American forces would stay the course in Iraq and assured the war-torn nation's Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari on Friday "there are not going to be any timetables" for their withdrawal.
I've been saying the same thing for a long time, sometimes in unexpected places. Not because of what I want, but because of what I see.

All this talk about training and how the Iraqis are going to be responsible for the security of their own country and so on ... is only smoke ... being blown up our tailpipes, so to speak.

Listen, friends: There is only one way to get all the American soldiers out of Iraq. And it has nothing whatsoever to do with the Iraqis.
