I like what the Prez says, "We stay until it is time to come home." It is our way, it is our duty.

When the Iraqi people tell us that it's time to leave then we should leave. For now it's "whatever it takes to get the job done" and that job is to return God given rights, freedom, justice and liberty to the people of Iraq governed by democracy of, for, and by the people.
