  •  Because of our regional interests. (1+ / 0-)

    I'd love to snap my fingers and make our dependence on foreign oil disappear tomorrow, but it's not going to.  The Middle East is a region vital to our interests.  You do know that even when we leave Iraq, we're not going to be leaving the M.E.  When I say "right", I am talking about the diplomatic situation in the M.E., and to set that deadline so people know what is happening.  And "right", doesn't mean good.  It means the best way we can end our involvement in this war.

    A sudden cutoff of funding does not figure in these concerns.
