John McCain: Well I think by that time that we will have a much smaller presence in Iraq . . . a smaller presence in Iraq, and the military of Iraq taking over their responsibilities that are presently being carried out by American troops.

It’s the government of Iraq – the Maliki government or whatever government it is functioning effectively; and the rebuilding of the infrastructure in Iraq so that people can lead better lives economically.
