    Does that mean we get to turn off the Halliburton spigot now?
  5. The fine print: They will prolly move them to Afghanistan.


    The economy is in the crapper - so we are are going to bring our troops home to less jobs and scale down the war machine - which also means less jobs?

    In an election year?
    I'll believe it when I see it.

    Does Iran invade Iraq on Jan 1 or do they wait for Super Bowl Sunday?

    In addition to the 150 troopers left behind to "assist in arms sales," how many "civilian contractors" will we keep in-country to "protect our interests?"

    Iran has no need to invade Iraq. It influences that country's government the good old-fashioned U.S. way -- bribery and influence-peddling.

    Obama alluded today to a work-program to secure employment for veterans. Which I'm sure, in their support of American troops, Republicans will pass.

    Smooth move by Obama, a year before the next election.

    Won't U.S. tax payers continue to spend money in Iraq but just with more government contractors instead of troops? Bait and switch.
