The Sabrin Promise!

Sometimes history has an odd way of working out... Last Combat Troops Leave Iraq.

March 20th, 2008 - 4:39pm
Dr. Murray Sabrin made the following promise,
“I promise to resign from office if all combat troops are not removed from
Iraq by September 2010.

Sabrin announced this promise by stating, “Our brave men and women accomplished their mission and won the Iraq War by removing Saddam Hussein. Americans continue to support our troops and approve going after the terrorists who attacked America on September 11th, however, Americans know we can not end another country’s Civil War. The voters sent the politicians to Washington in 2006 to bring our troops home – these politicians have failed. They should either do their job or step aside and that is exactly what we are promising today – if we don’t bring our combat troops home from Iraq by September 2010, I will resign from office and these Members of Congress will not run for re-election. Every congressional and senatorial candidate who is running for office in November needs to make the Sabrin Promise.”

Below is The Sabrin Promise:

The Sabrin Promise

I, __________, a candidate for the (____ Congressional District of ____)/(United States Senate from ___) promise to (not run for re-election)/(resign from office) if all combat troops are not removed from Iraq by September 2010.

I wonder what the experts would say about Sabrin's promise today, or just how Sabrin knew? Or if or how things could have worked out with Senator Sabrin... or how soon our combat troops will return when Iraqi government begins to look more like the (lack of)government in Somalia.
