US signals permanent stay in Iraq

"This spring's debate over a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq may have implied that the US presence there is likely to wind down soon, but recent comments from both the administration and military officials suggest a different scenario.

In Washington and among American military officers in Iraq, the idea of establishing permanent US bases there is under discussion – with one official citing as an example the decades-long presence of US troops in Korea."

"When they stand up, we'll stand down." - More lies.

OK, let's look at history...The U.S. doesn't completely pull out of Korea. The U.S. completely pulls out of Vietnam. Korea is a country split in two, with a dangerous dictator on one side starving his citizens. The U.S. does not trade with N. Korea. Vietnam is joined, with a booming economy (the Vietnamese stock markets was the world's best performer last year) and peaceful politics. The U.S. is ramping up trade with Vietnam at an astonishing rate.

It's very simple. Individual countries want to determine their own destiny, without foreign manipulations. When they have that freedom, they are at peace. Furthermore, when a country trades with another country, generally, they are at peace. "Foreign entanglements" it's right there in the Constitution.
