    Would you also say that about Bush when 40% of the people are exempt from income tax?

    eorge Bush will today announce the withdrawal of 8,000 combat troops from Iraq and an increase in US forces in Afghanistan.

    In remarks prepared for delivery to the US National Defence University, and released by the White House late last night, the US president bracketed Pakistan with the other two countries as major battlegrounds in the so-called war on terror.

    The troop cut for Iraq will probably be Bush's last major decision in a highly unpopular war that has seen his ratings plummet.

    There are around 146,000 US forces in Iraq. A marine battalion, of about 1,000 troops, would go home on schedule in November and not be replaced. An army brigade of between 3,500 and 4,000 troops would leave in February. About 3,400 support forces will also go home over the next few months.

    As for Afghanistan, Bush will send roughly 4,500 troops to face a resurgent Taliban. More than half of Bush's address will be devoted to Afghanistan as he outlines a "quiet surge" of additional American forces there, bringing the US presence to nearly 31,000.

    "For all the good work we have done in that country, it is clear we must do even more," Bush said.

    The US president announced that a marine battalion scheduled to go to Iraq in November would go to Afghanistan instead, and that would be followed by an army combat brigade. His speech also highlights decisions to vastly increase the size of the Afghan national army, which will grow from its current size of 60,000 troops to 120,000, instead of 80,000.
    As with the Missioned Accomplished banner, he made the announcement before he accomplished the task. None of those troops went home during Bush's term.

    Bush never said the war would be over during his term, he said the opposite.

    Why am I not surprised that you didn't understand the banner? The Aircraft carrier was returning for doing it's job, Mission Accomplished. Not surprising that someone who cannot get any non partisan information would get this wrong as well.

    What's wrong with being liberal.? Do you have any proof that liberals are bad?

    The republican party, as it stands now, has Mitch McConnell from Kentucky, senate, and eddie cantor, reps, virginia. McConnell barely made it past his last election. His state is owned by toyota. Toyota is in big trouble with recalls and will be laying off people in his state and he will have a hard time getting re elected. He is also rated as the 7th most corrupt member of congress.

    Cantor is a meat puppet for the hard core teabaggers and birthers whose main tactic is lying.

    Have you even read your posts? That is proof enough. Anyone that would ignore BEA, BLS, and the U.S. Treasury data isn't honest and IMO bad. Seems that data was just fine when Clinton was in the WH touting his performance but when Reagan and Bush were in the office the information isn't credible. Now Obama is in office and the data because it is bad is ignored.

    Apparently lying means something different to you than the rest of the world. The leftwing blogs you read are hardly credible and certainly have a double standard. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and of course Barack Obama haven't lied at all,

    I suggest reading a little more, posting a little less, and try to restore some credibility.
