Iraq wants us out

Iraq factions back troop withdrawal, stay silent on timetable
Seeking to quell the insurgency and sectarian violence, leaders of Iraq's sharply divided Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish political factions ended three days of contentious talks Monday with a call for a pullout of foreign troops from the country but no agreement on a timetable.


On Monday, Iraqi Interior Minister Bayan Jabr suggested U.S.-led forces should be able to leave Iraq by the end of next year, saying the U.N. Security Council's one-year extension of the mandate for the multinational force in Iraq, which occurred this month, could be the last.

"By the middle of next year we will be 75 percent done in building our forces and by the end of next year it will be fully ready," he told the Arab satellite station Al Jazeera.
At this point it looks like the only ones who want us to stay are republicans and centrist democrats.
