Iraqi Prime Minister Al-Maliki says that his forces can keep the peace in Iraq. That is good new, considering that it is a good step towards being able to bring out troops home. While I am a little hesitant to believe that the Iraqi troops could keep the peace without our help, I do think it may be time for us to give the Iraqis to prove themselves on their own. It may not be a bad idea to hand over control of a relatively peaceful city or area to the ISF. It is still way too early to talk about a complete withdrawl, but this is a great step in the right direction.
