    Is it? I thought there will be a minimal presence and the withdrawal will NOT be total.

    The original game plan was to keep a small force in Iraq. I guess the negotiations with Iraq about the immunity of the troops fell through and Obama made the decision (political decision to get re-elected) to get us out permanently..

    Except for the completely ignorable fact that they will need a small army to guard the largest and most expensive Embassy in the World, and then another small army guarding the several Oil wells, pipelines, ports and so on...

    The decision is certainly influenced by the drop in his approval rating and firmly with 2012 in mind. The region will descend into chaos if no US troops remain.

    The same can be said about India, but how many Indians want the British back?

    Exactly, that doesn't make any sense because it's not true.

    wasn't it? From an infrastructure and security perspective India was much better under British rule.
    This is widely acknowledged by Indians including prominent Indians such as your own Prime Minister during a lecture at Oxford.

    Don't bother replying :laugh:

    Was it? Urabn Metro transports, Highway networks, Airports, Shipping ports, dense railway networks all this was there & better than today in british rule?

    Was America more secure before WW1 than today?


    Thats contextual reading. What you might've heard is Indian GDP was better compared to rest of the countries at that time.
