Iraqi Cabinet sets withdrawal dates for U.S. troops

As predicted, anyone who voted for Obama because he would withdraw troops from Iraq has had their vote made irrelevant. The Iraqi cabinet has set dates for U.S. troops to leave Iraq. They claim the dates are firm and we are required to honor them.

The agreement sets June 30, 2009, as the deadline for U.S. troops to withdraw from all Iraqi cities and towns, Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said.

The date for all troops to leave Iraq will be December 31, 2011, he said.
Honestly, it is a good thing. It shows a level of maturity and confidence in the Iraqi government. Hopefully, it is truly reflective of the realities on the ground.
