It is reported that the US House has voted to set a deadline for the troops to return home. The vote was 218 to 210. The president may veto it...well, it looks like it'll definitely be vetoed.
I really don't know what to think after I read the article in BBC. Apparently the Iraqi Foreign Minister doesn't want the troops to leave yet. He believes that the US withdrawal should happen after the Iraqi military is self-reliant. I mean, it kind of sucks for the US to create mass chaos and then leaving without cleaning up their mess. Well, it kind of sucks that chaos was created in the first place.
Anyways, I really don't have enough knowledge about the war to expound on it. All I know are friends who have family members in the military, and I know my friends wants their loved ones to be safe. I was just talking to one of these friends yesterday and I saw this article and thought of her and her family. (I'm praying for you.)
