Obama's Troop Drawdown Decision Will End Iraq War in Late 2010, Officials Say


www.foxnews.com

The Iraq war will come to an end on Aug. 31, 2010, senior officials said, following President Obama's decision to end all counter-insurgency missions by that time.

Obama told top leaders in Congress on Thursday that he will transition the mission in Iraq to training, advising and engaging in limited counter-terrorist operations, according to congressional sources.

The president is expected to deliver a speech Friday at the Marine base in Camp Lejeune, N.C, in which he will order the immediate drawdown of the 142,000 Marines and Army personnel in Iraq.

So it will end in 2010 but yet we will leave 50,000 troops there as an "anti insurgency" force. Really? Anti Insurgency? You mean occupational force like what we have in Japan, S Korea, Europe, among others. People, is this change you can believe in? It sounds like more rhetoric from the two party crime family in Washington that seems to stick around like the turd that doesnt flush. You know what Im talking about. You try to flush and flush or in this case elected and re elect and they still seem to stick around to stink up the place. People....I have nothing else to say....

No wonder Pelosi is irate with Barack over this.

I don't really see the difference between a 150,000 strong anti insurgency force and a 50,000 strong anti insurgency force.

An insurgency is an insurgency.

In other words the Iraq War does not end in 2010.

I wonder who changed Barry's mind? Hmmm.

No changed his mind there is no difference between the two parties. There never was a difference in the candidates we got to choose from and there really never is. There is an agenda set and the nominees are just the tools to push that agenda. They use Napoleons divide and conquer techniques to keep us all fighting while the implement the agenda.

So in short no the Iraq war will not end in the sense that we will have an occupation force there which will continue to ring up a nice bill for us to pay. Alls I have to say is I dont want to hear one person complain about higher taxes then tell me in the same sentence we need to run the empire around the world like we see in Iraq.

and the fact we're leaving even say 30,000 says the USA has ulterior motives,,, leaving them there to see ,,or uphold our interests and making sure our plans achieve fruition

How many PERNAMENT bases did the U.S build there.


What is the death toll now, since there weren't really any terrorists. What state is Bagdad in, rubble? dust? I'm sure it's well over the million, if that doesn't even count. What about the surviving left to bereave the loved ones.

You can be sure, That Iran now is alot more dangerous and alot more war stricken than the times of Saddam.


The hypocrisy of American foriegn policy, it really is a disgrace. The behaviour from the Elite is disgusting and shameful. They had no right to invade another country like this. Absaloutely disgusting. I lay a curse onto the American elite forever. "I shall wish that greed shall eat you to the grave"

It makes me sick
