    Sorry my war happy brethren. If Republicans want us to cut spending elsewhere in the budget just in order to help citizens hit by natural disasters then I'd say were at the point where wars in far off away lands that simply don't pose a threat to us aren't worth the money or lives and should be ended asap. Unless of course spending money on another country must simply be more important to some conservatives then actually spending money on our own country?

    ****, why is it that when we're talking about food stamps and welfare some conservatives argue that's just hurting the poor people by making them dependent on the government and not self reliable, but when we're talking about another country apparently no expense , money or blood, is too costly to make sure that they are successful. Maybe government interference is simply hurting Iraq. According to what I understand to be the conservative doctrine, us scaling back the Iraqi dependance on our government would be the best possible thing for Iraqi's.

    Wait a minute. Conservatives think this is evidence that Obama is "in panic mode?"

    I don't get it. Explain this to me. Seriously this makes no sense.

    "Sources"??

    The only one reporting this is Fox news. I wonder what their sources are?

    From the OP article:

    Panetta, touring sites Tuesday in advance of the Sept. 11 10th commemoration, insisted "no decision has been made" on the number of troops to stay in Iraq.

    "That obviously will be the subject of negotiations with the Iraqis and as a result of those negotiations. As I said no decision has been made of what the number will be," he said.
    So, Leon Panetta isn't one of the sources, obviously.

    No, it is being reported. Pentagon narrowing options for Iraq troops - Yahoo! News

    U.S. officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the discussions, said they are finalizing several options. But they said key leaders, including President Barack Obama, have not yet made a decision because it still hinges on what Baghdad ultimately requests. Officials said they want to have the options ready by mid-month.
    So basically much ado about nothing.

    Yes, basically.

    From your link:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is reviewing a number of options that could leave several thousand U.S. troops in Iraq after the end of the year, but only if Iraqi officials make a decision about what they want American forces to do.
    From the link in the OP:

    The Obama administration has decided to drop the number of U.S. troops in Iraq at the end of the year down to 3,000, marking a major downgrade in force strength,
    Fair and balanced.

    It sure would be hard for Obama to use 'recall the troops!' as a campaign stance if the troops happen to come home before the election. How inconvenient for him.
    What Obama better pray for, is that Iran doesn't invade Iraq and slaughter those troops, because he was so politically ambitious that his stupid ass thought that Iraq could be held down with a single brigade.

    Putting politics before troop protection. Whatta ****ing asshole.

    Well.....more bad news.

    I am betting Iran invades and takes over Iraq once Obama pulls out most of the US forces there. Iran is twice the threat that Iraq was. It is only a matter of time before it gets nasty, and they'll have (or already have) the bomb!

    Iraq's shiites have a choice to make: be an ally of the US or be an ally with Iran and when the country breaks up (as it will, at some point), that choice will mean quite alot.

    An Iraqi shiite unification with Iranian shiites is not far off
