Do I really need to add anything to this? (emphasis added)
The top U.S. military commander in Iraq, Gen. George W. Casey Jr., predicted last week that Iraqi security forces would be able to take control of the country in 12 to 18 months. But several days spent with American units training the Iraqi police illustrated why those soldiers on the ground believe it may take decades longer than Casey's assessment.
So American troops might be ready to leave Iraq about the same time the Conservative government can cut Canada's greenhouse gases in half. Yeah, that sounds about right.
