Obama to end war by 2008?? I was hoping for more detail. A cynic might say that this is an irresponsible campaign promise designed to appeal to the loony 'war is never the answer' lefties.
I am curious about what happens to Iraq when we leave, what happens to the terrorists we are fighting there, how to deal with insurgents reaction to a precise timetable. More to follow, I am sure...
"I am here to say that we have to begin to end this war now," the Illinois senator said in excerpts from a speech he was to deliver later in Iowa. The excerpts were released by his presidential campaign.
He said he would immediately begin to pull out troops engaged in combat operations at a pace of one or two brigades every month, to be completed by the end of 2008.
