    How peaceful South Korea was had nothing to do with the decision to leave a substantial military force there after the Korean War. North Korea's powerful military has for sixty years posed a much greater threat to U.S. forces on the Korean peninsula that anything in Iraq could ever have posed to a residual U.S. force there. Iraq had been mostly pacified by the time Mr. Obama took office, as he himself affirmed. Whether most Iraqis wanted our forces were wanted in Iraq is irrelevant--we did not need their permission.

    Obviously U.S. forces were not wanted in Germany after World War II, either, but no one was concerned with making the Germans happy. U.S. forces have not always been very welcome in South Korea, either--there has been quite a lot of agitation there against the U.S. presence over the years--but there too, the U.S. was rightly concerned with its own interests, and not in pleasing everyone in South Korea.
    No, how peaceful they are has a lot to do with it. Citizen's don't care about staying where there is no real fighting. Iraq is different. From day one, we've been occupiers who were unwelcome and have seen killing throughout or time there. It has never stopped. This difference is significant.

    And Germany is still just another apple and not the tree frog Iraq was. There history was different. The circumstances of that war was different. Germany was the aggressor and not us. So once again you, like those who share your mistaken view, fail to compare like experiences.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Let me guess thats what the Iraqis were concerned about.. Obama..right... let me guess 100% of the Iraqis said "lets die to make sure Obama is relected"...

    GOD HELP US ALL
    I have no idea how to respond to this odd little post that has nothing to do with anything argued or reality for that matter.

    Yes, yes you are.

    The troops aren't being withdrawn because the U.S. wants them out. They're leaving because the Iraqi government refused to let them stay.

    U.S. Troops Are Leaving Because Iraq Doesn't Want Them There

    "The last American soldier will leave Iraq" as agreed, he said, speaking at his office in a leafy section of Baghdad's protected Green Zone. "This agreement is not subject to extension, not subject to alteration. It is sealed."

    Iraqi Prime Minister Says U.S. Forces Must Leave On Time - WSJ

    In one of his final acts in office, President Bush in December of 2008 had signed a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) with the Iraqi government that set the clock ticking on ending the war hed launched in March of 2003. The SOFA provided a legal basis for the presence of U.S. forces in Iraq after the United Nations Security Council mandate for the occupation mission expired at the end of 2008. But it required that all U.S. forces be gone from Iraq by January 1, 2012, unless the Iraqi government was willing to negotiate a new agreement that would extend their mandate.

    (snip)

    But ending the U.S. troop presence in Iraq was an overwhelmingly popular demand among Iraqis, and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki appears to have been unwilling to take the political risk of extending it.

    Don't facts sway you. Stand firm with the propaganda if it suits you.

    Yeah, that liberal Wallstreet Journal.

    Any excuse to deny reality will do I guess.
