    Yeah, I hear the Democrats are all up in arms about the residual force of 50K. :mamoru:

    This withdrawal from Iraq is going to be a pisser of an operation. I pity the fool that gets put in charge of the logistics end of it. I read the Wired "Danger Room" RSS feed a lot. Usually some seriously good info. Here's what they had to say about this:

    Truth. Politicians should start listening to their experts.

    None of the logistical experts were saying we could get everything out in a year.

    I'd rather have a date set and shoot for it, than to not have a date at all.

    He was. But a year or two ago wasn't the right time to pull out. The difference between then and now is the surge.

    Logistics don't dictate operations. I understand your point but Aug 2010 is enough time. Will AMC like it? Probably not.

    I have become demotivated as hell. I don't think I'm ever going to get deployed again and I'm just waiting out my contract now which has 2 years left on it and I feel like a piece of shit.
