Of course yes PCat a 1000 times. Here it is one week into the 7th month of the year and all troops in Iraq are supposed to be out by 12/31/11. It's not going to happen. It was never going to happen. From a article I just saw in Army Times.

In a July 1 letter, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Martin E. Dempsey told U.S. forces in and around Baghdad to expect to stay in Iraq “longer than they expected” until at least after Christmas, just days before the withdrawal deadline.

There is no end-date stated in Dempsey’s letter, which was posted on the website of the Hawaii-based 25th Infantry Division that is currently headquartered in Baghdad.

“We’re well aware that the request means many of you will be separated from your families for a second consecutive Christmas holiday,” Dempsey wrote. “I can assure you we wouldn’t have asked this of you if it wasn’t vitally important for the accomplishment of our mission in Iraq.”

I will bet money the proper preparation has not been done to accomplish this. There is a lot of info in this article.
