Kolb/Bermann: "A withdrawal of US forces [from Iraq] will be complex. But it can be accomplished safely within one year's time through careful planning and by focusing on getting out sensitive and critical equipment. While there may be disagreement over when and how to redeploy our forces, at least we can all agree that we must plan our exit more intelligently than how we planned our entrance."

That's good, even if you did focus on "sensitive and critical equipment" and not on the poor souls in uniform. Just think, if the US had started a year ago it'd be done by now. What's the next step, do we lock the congress in a big room and don't let them go pee until they sign the withdrawal order?
