You have suggested that Dr. Pipes favors a withdrawal of troops from Iraq... Actually, I don't believe a complete, military withdrawl is the position Dr. Pipes advocates. In another article Dr. Pipes specified what he thought the role of the U.S. and the allied troops should be...(I believe it was to establish fortified military bases -- but to only deploy at the request of the Iraqis -- that is, the U.S. would not get involved with day-to-day military operations, but rather, allow the Iraqis to handle it. Thus, the Iraqis would be in charge and in control -- not the U.S. or other forces.)
