10 more years in Iraq?

"The United States could have fighting forces in Iraq and Afghanistan for a decade, the top Army officer said, even though a signed agreement requires all U.S. forces to be out of Iraq by 2012."

Do not expect the "anti war" candidate to withdraw within 18 months, as promised during the campaign. Do not expect the "anti war" president to stick to his plan to withdraw all combat troops from Iraq in 2010, and all U.S. forces by 2012, as announced after he was sworn in. Do expect his supporters and the media and most of the "anti war" movement to forget this promise was made and this plan announced.
