Drawing down our troops in Iraq will allow us to redeploy additional troops to Northern Iraq and elsewhere in the region as an over-the-horizon force. This force could help prevent the conflict in Iraq from becoming a wider war, consolidate gains in Northern Iraq, reassure allies in the Gulf, allow our troops to strike directly at al Qaeda wherever it may exist,

this redeployment remains our best leverage to pressure the Iraqi government to achieve the political settlement between its warring factions that can slow the bloodshed and promote stability. My plan also allows for_a limited number of U. S. troops to remain and prevent Iraq from becoming a haven for international_terrorism and reduce the risk of all-out chaos.

But I do not believe that setting a date certain for the total withdrawal of U. S. troops is the best approach to achieving, in a methodical and responsible way, the three basic goals that should drive our Iraq policy: that_is, 1 ) stabilizing Iraq and giving the factions within Iraq the space they need to forge a political settlement;

for_example, let_s say that a phased withdrawal results in fifty thousand troops in Iraq by July 19, 2007. If, at that point, our generals and the Iraqi government tell us that having those troops in Iraq for an additional three or six months would enhance stability and security in the region, this amendment would potentially prevent us from pursuing the optimal policy.

In sum, we have to focus, methodically and without partisanship, on those steps that will: one, stabilize Iraq, avoid all_out Civil_War, and give the factions within Iraq the space they need to forge a political settlement; two, contain and ultimately extinquish the insurgency in Iraq; and three, bring our troops safely home.

This brings me to a set of broader points. As we change strategy in Iraq, we should also think about what Iraq has taught us about America's strategy in the wider struggle against rogue threats and international_terrorism. Many who supported the original decision to go to war in Iraq have argued that it has_been a failure of implementation.

And a report by our own intelligence agencies has concluded that al Qaeda is successfully using the war in Iraq to recruit a new generation of terrorists for its war on America. These are serious times for our country, and with their votes two weeks_ago, Americans demanded a feasible strategy with defined goals in Iraq a strategy no_longer driven by ideology and politics,

At the outset of this war, I challenged the Administration's assertion that deposing Saddam Hussein was the central measure in our war on terrorism. And although I believe we must stabilize Iraq, I continue to believe that the Administration's tendency to equate the military defeat of the Iraqi insurgency with the defeat of international_terrorism is dangerously short-sighted.

Long the before the war in Iraq, international_terrorism posed a grave security threat to the United_States. Well over two years after the start of the Iraq war, these threats to our way of life remain every bit as serious. Some have argued that these threats have grown.

We must instead turn our focus to those concrete objectives that are possible to attain namely, preventing Iraq from becoming what Afghanistan once was, maintaining our influence in the Middle_East, and forging a political settlement to stop the sectarian violence so_that our troops can come home. There is no reason to believe that more of the same will achieve these objectives in Iraq.

Now, after the loss of more_than 3, 000 American lives, after spending almost $ 400 billion, after Iraq has descended into Civil_War, we have_been promised, once_again, that the President's plan to escalate the war in Iraq will, this time, be well planned, well coordinated, and well supported by the Iraqi Government.

Unfortunately, the strategy, the tactics, and the mission itself have_been flawed. that_is why Congress now has the duty to prevent even more mistakes and bring this war to a responsible end. that_is why I plan to introduce legislation which I believe will stop the escalation of this war by placing a cap on the number of soldiers in Iraq.

It is my firm belief that the responsible course of action - for the United_States, for Iraq, and for our troops - is to oppose this reckless escalation and to pursue a new policy. This policy that I_ve laid out is consistent with what I have advocated for well over a year, with many of the recommendations of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group,

This measure would stop the escalation of the war in Iraq, but it is my belief that simply opposing the surge is not good enough. If we truly believe the only solution in Iraq is a political one - - and I fervently believe that - - if we believe a phased redeployment of U. S.

The civilian efforts to rebuild Iraq, establish a secure environment, and broker a stable political framework have, thus far, come_up short.

As troops continue to come home from Iraq and Afghanistan, the numbers and the need will only increase.

Every American wants to see a peaceful and stable Iraq. No American wants to leave behind a security vacuum filled with terrorism, chaos, ethnic cleansing and genocide.

Colin Powell had the courage to call his presentation to the United_Nations on Iraq a "blot "on his distinguished record. And recently John Edwards said he made a mistake in voting to go to war in Iraq, and accepted responsibility for this decision.
