    What possible good would it do to set a troop withdrawal date, anyway?
    The only people that would benefit from a date would be the enemy. :ugh2:

    I just see it as politics as per usual. The Reps. telling the Dems, "you can moan all you want about early w/ drawl, but it ain't gunna happen."

    Because it allows time for slacking off and bullshitting.

    Numbers have already begun to decrease...


    As for the Marine Corps when this all started we had around 130 bases or fobs in Iraq, which has now been decreased to about 70, the Corps hopes to lower it to around 30 soon...

    So it's already begun but it's a slow ass process.

    I dream of the day I get deployed again... I think it was the day (yeah, about 18 hours after) that I got back to Fort Bragg that I decided I wanted to go back to Iraq. Lemme go and check out Alaska for a few months and then send me :x:

    I wish we had MORE boots on the ground. Lowering staff is not a good thing when operational... esp for the support side of things- it's a nightmare
