U.S., World: Who likes the Iraq plan? Who doesn’t?

  • Democrats = Boo. Many Democrats think leaving 50,000 troops in Iraq until 2011 is too many for too long. It also breaks a campaign promise by Obama, who said it would be over sooner. “50,000 is a little higher number than I anticipated,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
  • Republicans = Yay! Republicans seem largely on board with the president who chose the deadline based on military suggestions. The final end date is January 1, 2012. Rep. John McHugh of New York said the plan “is one that we should pray for, plan for and work toward.” source
