Now, where have we heard this before?!?!?!?!????!???!

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Influential Iraqi Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr would dissolve his Mehdi Army militia if the United States started withdrawing troops according to a set timetable, a spokesman said.

The comments come at a crucial point in talks between Baghdad and Washington over a new security pact that will provide a legal basis for U.S. troops to operate in Iraq when a United Nations mandate expires at the end of the year..........

If agreed, the timetable would mean the Bush administration effectively adopting a schedule very close to that proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who opposed the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

A ceasefire imposed by Sadr on his militia a year ago has been a major factor in a drop in violence to four-year lows. Sadr, whose political movement controls 10 percent of seats in parliament, has long demanded U.S. troops leave Iraq.............

I comprehend quite well, pmp.



and comprehension isn't yours.....

I see that you also fail in the deflection mode. Tell me it ain't so?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

What have you to offer in the redeployment arena, pmp? Or do you think your smirkness is enough for this conversation?

Let me repeat your opening post in this thread, PmP:

"with AQ leaders having fled to Pakistan and Sadr disarming his militia, who needs a timetable?.....we can leave now......"




I offer you nothing....I find your constant argumentative style boring and empty......I made a legitimate comment on your OP.....I don't have the time to trade insults with you......

I don't believe you were being intelligent or honest or as I already intimated that you don't know much about the redeployment of troops and materiel. Perhaps I was a bit testy about this most testy of subjects but I do think the ideology behind statements like "we can leave now" exposes insensitivity to the needs of our troops and the responsibilities of our nation.

I can accept that you were just kidding. Me, too.
