I'm "skeptical," let's say
Via the Mad Biologist, there's a Reuters story that says coalition forces plan to be out of Iraq by 2007.
No way. This won't happen. The U.S. has long-term plans for Iraq; they didn't invade just to give up the whole prize four years later. You should never say never, I guess, because of course the situation could change dramatically. But if things continue basically as they are, there will still be American troops in Iraq when the next presidential election comes.
