#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.....
