    Bush did a great job as CiC in fighting and ending the wars. He did a lousy job with post war ops. Obama has done nothing but follow the Bush gameplan that he and so many on the left spent 8 and 9 years bitching about. Yeah buddy...he should hang a banner...
    It's not exactly "ending the war" if you have more action/violence in "post-war ops" than you do during the "war." Vance, you need to get past this notion that the Iraq War ended in '03. There are plenty of policymakers, analysts, and troops and their families who will tell you different.

    Obama is attacked for what he does & attacked for what he doesn't do, by the GOP/Tea-Baggers.
    Many Conservatives are fine with all the troops coming out. That some are not, and have taken shots at Obama over this, they do at their own political calculations. As noted by many Conservatives in this thread, this was an easy decision to make.

    please, take it to the Conspiracy Theory section.
    They didnt? No need for conspiracy...just a little honesty. We went to war against the Taliban led Afghanistan government. That was over in about a month. We have worked with and stood by the Afghanistan people, their government, and their soldiers since. Who then are we fighting? Insurgents...terrorists...no different than post WW2. Same scenario in Iraq. Saddam and his military was defeated long ago. The 'war' with Iraq ended in 2003. So who then have we been fighting in Iraq in this 'war' since then? Al qaeda...terrorists. Is the 'war' with them over?

    Did the war in Germany end in 1945 or does it continue today since we have troops there? Was the war against Germany still on 10 years later when American troops working with Germans were still cleaning out pockets of nazi resisters? The war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan ended in 2003 and 2002 respectively. I was in theater for the end of both. My son just left Iraq in July. We have been in post-war ops since the war ended, working WITH the Iraqi and Afghanistan people, government, and military. True or false?

    So we HAVE still been fighting to defeat the Iraqi go0vernment and people? Od course not. The ones who need to shut down their dogged insistence on a lie are you and people like you. We have been fighting terrorists. That 'war' isnt over. It better never be over. The 'enemy' we face today will damn sure be there tomorrow.

    our war in Iraq ends when our military forces have left Iraq.

    our war in Afghanistan ends when our military forces have left Afghanistan.
