House bans permanent bases in Iraq
From Think Progress. Today, the House passed a bill stating “it is the policy of the United States not to establish any military installation or base for the purpose of providing a permanent stationing of United States Armed Forces in Iraq.” Speaker Pelosi explained that “today’s vote can again make clear to the President, to the Administration, to the American people, to the people in the Middle East, to the people in Iraq — that the American people are opposed to a permanent military presence in Iraq.”
Stop pouring concrete, stop building infrastructure, stop lining Halliburton's pockets. I can just imagine the semantic arguments over what "permanent" means.
