    Re: Obama Is Sending 275 US Troops To Iraq

    This is a bad move done to placate people like McCain (the "ready, fire, aim" guy). Muslims need some time alone to kill each other for sectarian reasons. Then they will realize that radical religiosity is just plain dumb. Christians did this a few centuries ago. Now its the turn of the Muslims.

    Yeah, all this brouhaha over a football team's name is just plain stupid to me. Heck there logo was designed by the president of the American Indian Congress back in 1972 I think. Today one is apt to get into more trouble with the words they say than any wrong action they do.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    President Obama, in a formal report to Congress, said the troops in in the deployment he was announcing would be equipped for combat and would remain in Iraq until the security situation improved. About 160 troops are already in Iraq, including 50 Marines and more than 100 Army soldiers. Some of those soldiers have only recently arrived.'

    So, it's official...he went from 'no troops' to '275 troops'.

    Is this how Vietnam started (after the Gulf of Tonkin incident)?
    I wouldn't make anything of it. The US embassy is considered US soil. Please don't be ignorant about that.

    If you were a terrorist leader, or I, wouldn't it be to your credit if you were somehow able to murder these 300 men now being sent to stand guard?

    And what are these 'military advisers' do when there is no military there anymore? That's as cloudy a term as "Community Organizer". Just what do these people do?

    Oh yes.

    Other US places.

    275 more isn't going to do much good beyond protecting the embassy, maybe a housing unit for US officials, are they?

    When the White House says they are sending hundreds of troops for the Embassy and 'other American interests', I get suspicious.

    You don't, fine.
