Do you mean the 30,000 troops he just sent there 8 months ago and is planning on withdrawing a year or so from now?

It's not even "not enough"... it's a joke...

Bring them all home right now.

Were his lips moving when he said it? If so, he was lying.

It's a mute point. Those reductions would have to made anyways due the overstretched military. In fact, they will probably be forced to come about even before next summer by the military itself.

No, Pilgrim... I'm not the one who needs to go and explain anything to anyone...

And... how long do you think the U.S. will need to keep troops in Iraq in order to keep this "massacre" from happening? What is acceptable to you? 5 years? !0? 20?

And: do you not realize that there is a rather nasty massacre going on right now?

And... finally... blaming the slaughter that occurred in the void created by over a decade of U.S. military intervention in Southeast Asia on the people who opposed the war is pretty near to the most asinine thing I've ever seen written or heard said about the Vietnam War... And, I've heard an awful lot of asinine things said about that war... Maybe you don't remember or maybe you never knew but there was already a massacre going on before the U.S. pulled out: over 2 million dead: mostly non-combatants killed by U.S. carpet bombing:

Bring all the troops home from Iraq, now.
