U.S. troops are working to secure the airport in Baghdad. There are still hundreds of Americans at the embassy in Iraq, which is the largest diplomatic mission in the word. There is concern that they may need to be evacuated.

    I am hoping this is the limit of what seems to be “mission creep”.

    “will remain in Iraq until the security situation becomes such that it is no longer needed.”

    It’s not the security of vast expanses of desert, nor is it whatever government is decided on by their on going process, nor is it the security of all the women and children, and men- of Iraq. It’s about money, it’s about Oil wells, refineries, pipelines; that is at the forefront of the ” security situation”.

    In case we need a historical review & update re: the horrendous mess created by Bush & Company here’s a Canadian perspective:
    Seems like these new developments could lead to way more to come. I doubt it will be limited to the “300”
    Pray for PEACE… or dance for PEACE or do whatever it is you do to bring PEACE.
