Liberators, not occupiers.

Remember those bases we took out of Saudi Arabia (perhaps to make it easier to bomb the place later)? We're basically moving them to Iraq. I don't see how the people in Iraq can get a feeling of independence with American troops building themselves long-term housing inside Iraq.

(For the record, I'm not saying that bases in Iraq are a bad idea generally, merely that they run counter to what's perceived to be a main reason for being there.)
