Iraq military making plans for sudden withdrawal by the U.S.


Iraq’s military is drawing up plans to cope with a quick U.S. military pullout, the defense minister said yesterday, as a senior American official said that the Bush administration may reconsider its support if Iraqi leaders do not make major reforms by fall.

The U.S. official did not say what actions could be taken by the White House, but his comments reflected the administration’s need to show results in Iraq.

Meanwhile, pressure is mounting on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government to demonstrate progress on key reforms or risk losing American support.

Yesterday, Defense Minister Abdul-Qader al-Obeidi told reporters that Iraq’s military was drawing up plans in case U.S.-led forces left the country quickly.

“The army plans on the basis of a worst-case scenario so as not to allow any security vacuum,” al-Obeidi said.

Quote:
"That currently peace can only be accomplished with an honest broker not with Terroristic attacks. For our nation young people need to become more involved in our governmental process because they need direction in their life and the U.S. Army is the place to grow. The military is a great extended family that will only benefit our future."
