Are they ready or Will this be potential danger for our Troops?

By Tuesday June 30th, all troops will be out of the cities in Iraq. They will still maintain FOB (forward operating bases) but they will not be the main security force for these cities anymore, the Iraqi's will be. Do you believe the Iraqi Security Force is ready for this or will this cause an uproar in violence and br potentially bad for our troops?

  • No it is not bad for our troops. We need to honor the fact that Iraq is a new country who deserves their rights. We need to stay out of their business. We can not be there forever.

  • They're not going to withdraw everyone at the same time. Do you realize how many troops are over there? It's going to take more than 1 day to get everyone out of there, which is why the withdrawal has been taking place for the past year, possibly longer, but very slowly.

  • I am not referring to the whole withdraw of our troops from the country. I'm talking about the security of the cities being given completely to the Iraqi's verses our handing the security matters. I'm worried that while the Iraqi's may be ready to handle the attacks and bombings, maybe the targets will become our military FOBs instead of the crowded market places. We will no longer have the freedom to go out and arrest insurgents or patrol with out clearance from the Iraqi Security Force first.

  • I'm not asking if you think we should or shouldn't be in Iraq. I'm asking if you think this will cause our military to become the targets of attacks since we now will not be allowed to respond to attacks with out first receiving permission from the Iraqi Security?

  • There has BEEN an uproar of violence since we been there and FOREVER before that. We didn't cause their instability and we shouldn't try to fix it. Real revolution must come form the people of Iraq, not the people of America.

    Darfur and Iraq are two very different things. We didn't go to Iraq to stop mass genocide. We went under the guise that they were planning to nuke us...   we didn't involve oursleves in S. Africa when Apartheid was still going on.....I have a hard time sending military intervention to other countries. If another country tried to interfere with OUR government I would br freaking the F out.....


    Darfur , IMO, has crimes against humanity going on and on a massive level. I think if we did something, it would have to be through the UN

  • There have been mass casualties in every city they've pulled out of within days after. The people who live there are terrified. Both militaries are calling it a grave mistake. The only one calling it a good idea is the prime minister because he knows he can blame it on Obama if it doesn't work.
