it's interesting how they are making it sound like al-q and the terrorists in general have been defeated and the war is over.

I've got more important things to do then to watch and listen to the rhetoric and lies that these pawns on the chess board spew forth. I'm going to cook a pot of spaghetti for the family for dinner, and perhaps do some christmas stocking shopping .... MUCH more important and definately less frustrating.

That's right! Go back to your own life. Don't take interest in international news.

All that matters is you and your neighbourhood.

the real reason for the pullout is that starting jan 1
iraq's "liberators" will no longer be above Iraqi law, immunity for occupation soldiers will be revoked.

no more get out of jail free cards for looters and rapists, the "party" is over.

You missed the whole point. That being ... you can't believe what they are saying so why waste your time listening to this 'news conference'. There isn't any 'news' that will come out of it, at least nothing that is believable - if you consider the track record of those involved.

Rather predictable BS for Obama. He did leave the door wide open for additional efforts to "protect" other nations much like we did in Libya. Our attention will soon shift to another region on the dark continent, to Syria, Yemen etc. The Obama Doctrine is building up speed.


Make no mistake about it, there is an Obama Doctrine—but you won’t hear about it from the man himself. That’s because it’s a “doctrine of silence,” writes Roger Cohen in the New York Times. “America has decided that conventional wars of uncertain outcome in Iraq and Afghanistan are a bad way to fight terrorists and that far cheaper, more precise tools for eliminating enemies”—like drones and cyberwarfare—“are preferable.” In choosing this approach, President Obama has picked the lesser of two evils, Cohen asserts.

Obama wanted nothing more than to close the Iraqi chapter so that he can focus on other ventures and other "hot spots". Like our current foray into Uganda with 100 spec. ops forces on a kill or capture mission for Joseph Kony of the LRA. Can't drill for oil with a mad man on the loose. The same mad man who has been terrorizing the region for the past 25 years. Until now.


US troops had deployed to Obo in the Central African Republic and Nzara in South Sudan, where Uganda's army has forward bases to battle the rebel group, Kulayigye said, but gave no details of the numbers of troops sent.

Some of the US troops staged a training exercise Tuesday with Ugandan airforce crews in Entebbe, about 35 kilometres (21 miles) west of the capital Kampala, on how to package supplies to be air dropped to frontline troops.

Previously Uganda had to rely on supplies being ferried in by helicopter to specified landing sites but will now be able to be resupplied without having to return to base, Kulayigye said.

A US official, speaking to AFP here on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to talk to the press, confirmed that some troops had arrived in affected areas but could not say where exactly the troops were located.
