    2011 ------------------ FINALLY!!

    Will Obama get credit? Absolutely NOT! The Republicans are out in full force criticizing this as "a huge mistake!" Interesting.

    8 1/2 years of this war dragging on and dragging on with absolutely NO "final" objective. And yet we're not "nation" building! The whole TRILLION dollar expenditure put on credit and adding to the national debt. Giving the wealthy a tax CUT -- historically -- a FIRST when our nation is at war! 5 & 6 deployments and a stretching too thin of our military.

    What could "possibly" be the Republican's motivation (except for Ron Paul) for wanting to continue this??

    I applaud our military for sticking this out. It shows the strength of our Democracy -- because in most other nations -- this kind of a war would probably have ended in a military coup at home!

    It's a losing proposition. We never should have gone in, and now that we are leaving I expect the country will devolve to anarchy and/or several smaller countries over the next few years. What a mess. No one wins.

    Thats hilarious. Obama does nothing but sit on his ass and he's supposed to get credit for winning the war.

    We didn't win, we got bored.

    Define "at war" you seem to be using it in whatever way you like so you don't have to be wrong.

    It is interesting that liberal morons can't talk about anything without bringing up that somebody has more than them, and the government should take it by force. Why? Because we all know liberals are FAR too stupid to earn, or create, wealth. They are fucking retarded elitest whiners. I forgot, they are also lazy as fuck: lets go sit in the park man.....we'll call it a protest! What a group of idiots you are.

    Come come, Obama should get credit for halting the war, not for winning it.

    Considering that he's following Bush's plan for withdrawal...

    And we're not a Democracy.

    Yup, there's nothing more Republicans like than a protracted war that destroys the US economy, wastes young 'Mericuhn lives as war kindling, and that they can blame the failures on opposition parties/presidents when things go wrong. Remember how much Reagan was always on the lookout for a good excuse to invade a country?

    Over half of Senate Dems voted for this war. Try again with the blame game... if you are going to point, point at both parties and stop your hate mongering against one.

    CAIRO (AP) — The U.S. military's departure from Iraq opens the door to expanded Iranian influence in the Middle East, though that door could close fast if Iran's closest Arab ally Bashar Assad falls from power in Syria.

    I always remember his Rambo comment..."In the spirit of Rambo, we're gonna win this time". Overdose on too many Western's me thinks. Bless his little heart.

    "We were hoping that when we finally left Iraq that we would leave behind a unified and stable and democratic Iraq that was essentially pro-American. At this point, it's hard to see how Iraq over the next few years is going to be a stable country, much less a meaningful democracy. And I even doubt whether it will be pro-American. So I think that this is all just evidence of what critics said in the run-up to the war, that going into that country was a colossal blunder. . . .

    "We faced this same situation in Vietnam. We were in Vietnam for roughly eight years with large-scale American forces. And when we finally left, the place came undone. And that was because the political system that we left behind was basically dysfunctional. It wasn't capable of running the government and dealing with the North Vietnamese.

    "In this case, we have a similar situation. We're leaving behind a dysfunctional government. And you want to remember here, the Obama administration was not anxious to get out. It is the Iraqis who basically forced us to get out, because they wouldn't negotiate with us on this whole question of whether or not American servicemen could be put on trial by the Iraqi government. That's what forced us out. We would have liked to have stayed. And the reason that we wanted to stay is that we were well aware that this place was likely to blow apart when we left. And what's amazing is, is how quickly that's happening."
