After Congress attempted 7 times to start pullout of US troops with it only going to the president’s desk once (the A-hole vetoed it) Obama is finally announcing troop withdrawal today, which will save taxpayers billions, save American and Iraqi lives and make the Iraqi people, very, very, happy.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is ready to say he’s ending the Iraq war by pulling all combat forces out of the country by Aug. 31, 2010. That’s not as fast as he promised in his campaign, but still hastens the exit of most U.S. forces from the war zone.

4 Thoughts on “It’s about time

    I wouldn’t characterize it as saving too many Iraqi lives, but it will certainly be a good thing for us.

  2. It can’t hurt.

    Did you see in the article we had an agreement to be out by 2011 anyway? That is the first time I had heard about it. Did Obama now that while he was campaigning?

    Yes Obama knew about it, and McCain knew about it which is why neither of them made an issue out of Iraq during the campaign.

    When the Iraqi government tells you to leave, it would be pretty hypocritical to tell them to *&#@ off when we are the people proclaiming how great Democracy is.

    I think Obama played this one right, because nobody can claim he is going to lose the war or that he is playing the “cut and run” card because frankly it has already been agreed upon – so all he is doing is giving the Iraqi government what they have asked for.

  4. Since when does America listen to what other country’s tell us? That would be diplomacy and we don’t have time for that. Now where is my gun?
