How would Congress vote if Independents had their way?
The sense of Congress is that...
We should bring all our troops home from Iraq by the end of this year. We have overthrown a dictator and set up a democratic government. While we need to remain involved diplomatically, the work of our military forces is finished.
The minority position is that it is a big mistake to bring our all our troops home from Iraq by the end of this year. Doing so wil jeopardize the gains we have made, and some continued American military presence is necessary to protect the country from extremists and outside threats like Iran.
