"General David Petraeus has suggested that he is willing to draw down at least 1
brigade sometime next year out of Iraq. Meanwhile, the Democrats reiterated that
they are willing to compromise on the Iraq war. “Senate Majority Leader Harry M.
Reid (D-Nev.) has said that he could drop his demand for a firm troop withdrawal
next spring to win GOP votes. And Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said this week
that she will allow a vote on bipartisan troop legislation that, without
requiring a redeployment, would force the administration to begin publicly
planning for a withdrawal.” "
It sounds like the two sides are talking again. This is the best sign that I have seen in months that a solution may be coming regarding Iraq. Both sides have honest concerns, if both could be addressed, that would be a great thing for everyone.
