Obama: Iraq war will be over by year’s end; troops coming home
Huzzah! I might be able to make it to the family’s pagan winter solstice fest after all.
The right is still bitching that we should say. However, that is the Iraqi Government’s choice as agreed upon by a republican President. Having us stay would be another invasion.
Let Libya be a lesson to the hawkish neo-cons out there. There is a better way to fight counter insurgency than to slam heavy brigades all over the world in a game of terrorist whack a mole. We don’t heal things, we break them. It’s our task, so use us wisely. Iraq won’t become a better place through the application of heavy foreign war-power. Now it’s time to see if the Department of State can finish the game that the DoD started.
