J(E)DI 2010 2 Lab Name File Title DETAILS OF WITHDRAWAL PLANS ARE KEY THE PARTICULARS OF WITHDRAW MUST BE PART OF THE DISCUSSION George McGovern, former U.S. Senator from South Dakota and Jim McGovern , U.S. Representative from Massachusetts 3d Congressional District, June 6, 2005 , “Withdraw from Iraq,” Boston Globe, ACC. 6-24-10, http://www.boston.com/news/globe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2005/06/06/withdraw_from_iraq/, JT//JDI One thing, however, is clear: Washington cannot determine Iraq's destiny . It doesn't matter how many times Condoleezza Rice or Donald Rumsfeld visit. It doesn't matter how many soldiers we deploy. The myriad factions in Iraq themselves must display the political will to demand a system of government that respects the diversity that exists in their country. There are no easy answers in Iraq. But we are convinced that the United States should now set a dramatically different course -- one that anticipates US military withdrawal sooner rather than later. We should begin the discussions now as to how we can bring our troops home. A STRICT TIMELINE INCENTIVIZES MODERATES TO COMPROMISE, ADDING STABILITY Brett H. McGurk , International Affairs Fellow in Residence, Council on Foreign Relations, April 7, 2010 , “Iraq: Struggling Through 'Highest Risk' Window,” http://www.cfr.org/publication/21842/iraq.html?breadcrumb= %2Fregion %2F405%2Firaq, ACC. 6-24-10, JT//JDI Indeed , there is a questionable assumption underlying the August timeline: that by withdrawing on a timeline we will "incentivize" the Iraqis to come together and settle their differences. There is no empirical evidence to support that assumption, and the precise opposite is probably truer: To convince moderates to make bold compromises, they must believe the United States will stick around. We know the argument, for example, that Iranians make to Shia parties when trying to convince them to act against our interests: "The Americans are leaving; we will be here forever--so why make your bed with them?" In short, nothing in Iraq gets easier if we are perceived as heading for the exits without regard to conditions on the ground or the wishes of Iraqi leaders. U.S. policies
