Get out already

Steve Shalom asks: So when and how should US troops leave Iraq?

He concludes: "the best hope for the Iraqi people is the course suggested here -- complete withdrawal of US troops and contractors, announced and initiated immediately and carried out on a prompt time table, and supported by international and regional diplomacy, backed by a different kind of US foreign policy, a democratic and non-militaristic foreign policy -- with substantial US reparations, and if desired by the Iraqis, international peacekeepers but not the US military."
