Do you think U.S. forces will stay true and begin a withdrawal by next year or do you think that Iraq will turn into another Bosnia and be another 10 years?

I think a troop pull down in Iraq might just happen but where you guys go from there..... I'm afraid it isn't going to be back here to the States... This war on terror is by far from being over. What say you...

Personally, I will be heading home since I am national guard now. As for my Active counterparts, good question. I am afraid that WOT is not a popular idea and is gaining less popularity in the States. No one likes a war, and this isnt our grandfathers war either. What we are dealing with here is so different on so many levels. This could get uglier before it gets better. I just hope for the best here in Iraq. I pray that we do make a difference here and Iraq can stand on its own two feet and show the citizens of America that this isnt over oil or anything else.
