We're Going, We're Going

We are determined that before the sun sets on this terrible struggle, our flag will be recognized throughout the world as a symbol of freedom on the one hand and of overwhelming force on the other
-General George C Marshall

On the third anniversary of commencing hostilities against saddam hussein, there have been many calls for us to summarily depart Iraq. We're mired in an unwinnable civil war, they tell you!
Guess What, Folks? we are leaving. We are already pulling back slowly. We are closing FOBs and shipping crap home. You don't just up and leave billions of dollars of equipment amassed over three years.
So quit your complaining. We're leaving already.
Should be done by 2009. Three years in, three years out.
