Troops to Stay in Iraq Until 2010

But that's like a million years from now.

The U.S. Army has plans to keep the current level of soldiers in Iraq through 2010, the top Army officer said Wednesday, a later date than any Bush administration or Pentagon officials have mentioned thus far.

Yeah, I have plans to win the lottery, becoming a swinging bachelor adored by millions of gorgeous women, buying a house that has a indoor swimming pool and a jacuzzi and, if I find time, trying to lose some weight. Again, these are just plans. Things are known to not always go as planned. I mean, hey, it's possible we may pull our troops out of Iraq by 2009, or maybe, the world will explode next week. Keep your fingers crossed.

The Army chief of staff, Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, cautioned against reading too much into the planning, saying it is easier to pull back forces than to prepare and deploy units at the last minute.

Schoomaker. That's funny. You KNOW he got teased in school.

"This is not a prediction that things are going poorly or better," Schoomaker told reporters.

Well, I would think if things were going better we wouldn't need to plan to keep soldiers in Iraq another foiur years. But, then again, if things were poor than we wouldn't be planning to keep the same level of troops. So I guess, nothing has changed in Iraq and you don't plan on that happening either.

Haven't Starbucks and McDogfuckers set up shop there yet?

When you see those pop up next to 'Al Yamani Explosive vest supplies' you know you're there to stay.
