    OBAMA'S WAR is with us for many years to come

    there will be more than twice as many americans, for example, in obama's mountains on the moon eighteen months from now than there were before the slasher ESCALATED

    that is, IF things go according to plan

    and how's LIBYA looking these days not weeks?

    hostile?

    party on, peaceniks

    It is yet to be seen. According the agreement signed by the US and Iraq, all US forces are due to be out of Iraq by the end of the year. Do you see that as a good thing or a bad thing?

    Not going to happen... the US will sign the deal, but then back out because of whatever contrived reason will show up around that time.

    But of course it would be a good thing for the US to stop engaging in peace action all around the world, it's just one of those that's not going to happen. It's like with Ron Paul, he would be the best thing for the country, and because of that he doesn't stand a chance of sitting in the white house.

    Don't have to as leaving doesn't really mean leaving, but instead only going to the large base we spent so much on. Our goal of being based there has been realized.

    Your position sounds just like Bush and Obama.

    I thought the SOFA specified that ALL troops must be out of Iraq by the end of the year. Is that not so?

    No, that is not so. They will be using that base they built.

    you don't know what you're talking about---again

    President Obama declared the beginning of the end of one of the longest and most divisive wars in American history on Friday as he announced he will withdraw combat forces from Iraq by August 2010 and all remaining U.S. troops by December 2011.

    The plan will withdraw most of the 142,000 troops now in Iraq by the summer of next year, leaving 35,000 to 50,000 behind with the limited missions of training and advising Iraq security forces, hunting terrorist cells and protecting U.S. civilian and military personnel. Those "transitional forces" will leave by 2011 in accordance with a strategic agreement negotiated by President George W. Bush before he left office.

    "Let me say this as plainly as I can," Obama told the Marines. "By August 31, 2010, our combat mission in Iraq will end."

    He added: "I intend to remove all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of 2011. We will complete this transition to Iraqi responsibility, and we will bring our troops home with the honor that they have earned."
    All U.S. troops out of Iraq by 2011, Obama says - SFGate

    facts are our friends, facts are very powerful
