WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama looks likely to order U.S. combat troops to withdraw from Iraq over a period of about 19 months -- a compromise between his campaign pledge and some commanders' wishes, officials said on Tuesday. A formal announcement is expected by the end of the week, marking a milestone in an unpopular conflict that overshadowed the presidency of Republican George W. Bush and helped Democrats retake Congress and the White House.


Looks like the people that strongly wanted him to pull out of Iraq will eventually get their wish while he still manages to compromise with commanders wishes. Let's hope this happens and he announces it officially soon.

We're never going to be fully out of Iraq. We have put way too much money into that country to completely pull out.

It's only a matter of time before he announces that we're leaving 5,000 troops there 'just in case.'
