#2 So the question is, where are the 80,000 US troops going when they leave Iraq? Are they just resting up before going to Syria?

Hopefully not back to Germany...

#5 I hope the 80,000 troops leave Iraq by heading west, through Syria and Lebanon, before debarking in Israel next year.

Beirut is a great harbor - big enough to hold the whole sixth fleet. Let the guys go home through Beirut. Lattakia is also an excellent harbor - let's arrange for half of them to go home through there! Between the two, we could clean up a big mess, restore peace to a region that hasn't seen it since the Turkish caliphate turned it into a seedy backwater, and have two excellent places to home-port a third of our Med fleet.

#7 Latakia is a beautiful city--great port--and there's even A Meridien Hotel there (French owned)--thought the Sixth Fleet might like it.....

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
