United Press International - Security & Terrorism - U.S. ex-general calls for Iraq pull out

The key point here is that the big winners out of Bush's Iraq adventure are Al quaida and Iran.
When the Brits go southern Iraq will be dominated by Iran.
Central Iraq will continue to be a refuge for terrorists from all over.

Only the puppet Government benefits from the coalition staying, and most of the coalition are already planning or implementing withdrawal.

Retired three star Lt. Gen. William Odom, writing for, wrote that while President George W. Bush wants to bring democracy and stability to the Middle East, the only way to achieve that goal is for the U.S. armed forces to get out of Iraq now.

Odom, one of the most respected U.S. military analysts and a prominent figure at the conservative Hudson Institute in Washington, wrote, 'We have seen most of our allies stand aside and engage in Schadenfreude over our painful bog-down in Iraq. Winston Churchill's glib observation, 'the only thing worse that having allies is having none,' was once again vindicated.

'There is no chance that our allies will join us in Iraq,' he wrote. '... Iraq is the worst place to fight a battle for regional stability. Whose interests were best served by the U.S. invasion of Iraq in the first place? It turns out that Iran and al-Qaida benefited the most, and that continues to be true every day U.S. forces remain there.'"
