Time to leave Iraq?

How long till we're out of Iraq? To my knowledge, no one is suggesting we stay in Iraq forever, so this isn't a question of if we're leaving but when. Of course, we went to Iraq for a reason. Victory in Iraq used to mean something: (1) Outsting Saddam, (2) Finding the WMD that were in imminent danger of falling in to terrorist hands, and (3) Helping the Iraqis set up a constitutional democracy - which would, of course, spread freedom and pro-western democracies all over the Near East region. Well, Saddam is gone, there were no WMD (unless you're Crazy Rick "OMG WMDS ARE EVERYWHERE LOL!!11" Santorum), and the government is up but only religious fundamentalism is spreading.
