End the War in Iraq, Now.

What would the people in Iraq like to see in the first hundred days of the fourth consecutive U.S. administration to be at some form of war against their country? I think they would like to see the total, unequivocal withdraw of all U.S. military personnel and private security contractors from Iraq. Now, not later. Without qualifications, equivocations or excuses. No "enduring" bases. No residual forces. As for me, I long upon my soul to see the end of the unjustified, illegal war of aggression against Iraq that has been fought in my name as an American.
