Withdrawal from Iraq

All that nonsense about how the U.S. can't possibly withdraw "safely" from Iraq in less than 16 months? It's all bullshit:
Washington does not want to alter a draft security pact with Iraq, despite demands for change from Baghdad where the document failed to win support from Iraqi political leaders, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Tuesday.

"This is not just kind of a paper exercise. The consequences of not getting an agreement are very real," he added. "We basically (would) stop doing anything."
So according to the U.S. Secretary of Defense [sic], if the U.S. doesn't get its way, they could suspend operations immediately. Not in 16 months. Immediately.
