Peace for a Piece
It would appear on the surface that the U.S. is moving towards a withdrawl from Iraq, the Democrats control the House and barely the Senate but moves to defund the war seem to be making progress. The ugly truth would suggest that the facts of "withdrawl" are more complex than the American people and their representitives would care to acknowledge.
The inconvienient fact is that there is no withdrawl strategy because there is no intent to leave. Evidence of this may be seen in the construction of American "megabases".These will require 35,000-50,000 personnel for an indefinite period of time. The bases themselves are located in proximity to refineries and oil fields interestingly. Neither party seems willing to address the real ulterior motives to this fiasco.
