We will be in Iraq until the oil and natural gas families of America and europe have finished the pipeline to the persian gulf. Then we will keep some troops there to secure it. We have several military bases along the pipeline right now. The maps tell you what our leaders never will.

Bush appoints base closings commission
President Bush, brushing aside a stall tactic by Sen. Trent Lott, R-Mississippi, appointed the nine-member commission that will determine military bases closings without waiting for Senate confirmation.
Bush made the appointments while the Senate was in recess, the White House announced Friday night. The recess appointments prevent delays as the commission prepares to make the first round of base closings in a decade.
