US troops could remain in Iraq after 2011

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, visiting Iraq on the eve of the eighth anniversary of the fall of Baghdad, said Friday the United States could extend its troop presence in the country beyond the scheduled 2011 pullout.

Gates said that if Iraq wants American troops to remain, a deal could be negotiated for the long term or for as little as two or three years.

With 20/20 hindsight, it is clear that there is no difference between the Iraq policies of Bush, McCain and Obama.

Iraq will be like Germany - - sixty + years after the war ends, we will still have troops in permanent bases.
