  • I agree. If he is planning on bringing them home...why did he just deploy more troops to Iraq?

  • I agree with you. If we pull our troops out early I guarantee we will be back within a year. The Middle East already thinks Obama is weak and we will probably be attacked again.

  • It was a campaign promise, that got Obama some votes. He played a political card, that's all. And being the smooth talker he is (having graduated from Bill Clinton's School of Semantics and Double Talk), he'll "re-explain" what he REALLY meant by troop withdrawl....withdrawing from one country to another...to placate his supporters.

  • The troops are staying there, he's just relocating them to Afghanistan. We will still have a huge presence in the region, we're just moving them around. Also, you can bet that no matter how much we take out of Iraq, we are still going to have a nominal presence there for years.

    Not looking forward to the bloodshed, though. It's after the pullout begins that casualties will rise.

  • Because he said he would. Or at least it's what he implied to get himself elected. I am with you, they need to fight it out over there, and yes I am that elfish to not want it here where my children are! I think he got into office, was given access to the top secret stuff, and realized he can't pull them out!

  • I agree momof030404--
    I really think he thought playing the role of POTUS was all about photo ops and ribbon cuttings, nad "big check" presentations! That's why he looked ashen after the first time he met with Bush! He looked like he was going to hurl! Welcome to the Big League Obama!

    So why don't you try to tell people what they don't get? Instead you just make a fly by comment that is not helpful in any ways at all.
