Withdrawal Isn't that Hard

We keep hearing how it will take a year or more to leave Iraq even if we started getting out right now.

Greg Cochran explains that that is baloney and that we could get out in mere months.

The gist of the article is that most of the "logistical problems" come from the belief that (a) we cannot leave behind anything, including non-combat equipment (e.g. furniture) (b) that soldiers must be taken directly to America to be "out of Iraq," and (c) leaving by land is more dangerous than it actually would be.

The only presidential candidate so far to mention this is Kucinich.

That is all.
