I may be wrong.
They're pulling out the 40,000 troops because they'll be needed elsewhere, like in Iran.
Our bipartisan Congress is committed to military interventionism in the Middle East, regardless of what economic problems are happening on the home front.
Mark my words. There will be another major war soon. We are already in every oil related country there.
How long until Iran goes to war with Iraq for the 100th time?
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
It's all for his campaign in my opinion. I think it's a poor decision for Obama to announce a troop withdrawal or to withdraw if the situation is still hostile or not resolved.
Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. -Socrates
