    Then you're the most uninformed person in America.

    Throughout the campaign he hammered that we were wasting our time in Iraq when the real enchilada was in Afghanistan/Pakistan.

    I thought he "hammered" that he would withdraw the troops from Iraq in 2009 and move them to Afghanistan/Pakistan.

    Now it looks like US troops will stay Iraq beyond 2009 and he will just send another 20,000 American boys to Afghanistan.

    Drawing them down in 2009. That's how it works in the real world. We'll probably have some sort of military presence in Iraq for many years to come (unless their next Ayatollah kicks us out.).

    How long did it take us to leave Germany? (that's a trick question for you)

    It took us over 100 years to leave Germany, which is about the same time John McCain said we will stay in Iraq.

    You are beginning to sound like Dik Cheney and Don Rumsfeld defending the Iraq War. :D

    We're still in Germany Mikey. But I'd say only since WWII which means 68 years and counting.
