Obama says we're getting out of Iraq

At long last.

My worry is that those with a vested interest in keeping up the occupation will somehow convince people that "we can't leave". Of course we can leave. We just have to be willing to accept the consequences of leaving. I, for one, am willing to accept that our leaving may unleash more violence in Iraq. If we're not occupying the country, then violence in Iraq is a much less our problem. Certainly we need to support those trying to negotiate a viable political solution to the myriad problems there. But that "support" need not take the form of a military occupation.
