.. Similarly both electoral rivals want a US long-term military “presence” in Iraq. The White House certainly isn’t expecting to maintain 1,60,000 troops in Iraq indefinitely, but it is planning a long-term occupation anchored in what the Pentagon has described as “enduring bases” and continues to construct these huge, imposing bases. Democrats too are on record as saying they want a long-term similar presence. The March 27 Senate resolution provides for a “limited number” of troops after the pullout date, which would be devoted to training and to “targeted counter terrorism operations”. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had this to say:

“I think we’re going to be left with the reality of something the size of a brigade, somewhere in the region, to make sure that the terrorists cannot occupy territory.”

Biden says the “least important part” of the Iraq spending bill that recently cleared the US House and Senate is its target date for withdrawal of troops. More importantly:

“…it redefines the mission of our troops from fighting in the midst of a civil war to doing what is rational for them to do, which is to continue to train Iraqi Army, to deny Al-Qaeda occupation of swaths of territory… and three for so-called source protection — protecting our own forces.”
