Skip to comments.Obama Giving Up In Iraq; To Make It Official Tomorrow; All Brigates Out In 16 Months.

Maj just got the word, on Shep Smith show, scheduled to be announced tomorrow. All combat brigades to be out in 16 months.
Real effect is immediate surrender of purpose. No commander is going to undertake any major mission knowing that, at the very longest, no US offensive military power will be in-country after next Spring, so why waste lives to gain something we soon will give away.
Offensive operations will stop. Brigades will go into a useless, purely defensive mode. It's over. Our POTUS surrendered.
About 3000 Americans volunteered to pay the ultimate price in Iraq so we could be free. Obama just ensured those sacrifices will have no lasting meaning.
Bush prayed for every one of them and their souls. Obama just pissed on every one of their graves.
Look for Iraq to cozy up to Iran now too!
It also means we will be back there in a generation, to clean up the mess that the PFOTUS just made....
Hey, it’s only his first day ... give the guy a chance to really and totally mess up ... say a week?
And with that bastard as POTUS, they are right.
military means republican votes therefore he will close as many bases as possible especially in swing states
My grandson just joined our Guard in TX. I can’t get in touch with him about this.
Another disgraceful act by the Chosen One.
I wonder what will happen when reality sets in and he realizes that the troops can’t leave in 16 months.
What we MUST communicate to our brave servicemen is that they MUST stay the course. For our warriors to get out of the military would be the END of our Republic. Obama wants nothing more than to PACK the military with his political zombies. Patriotism equals staying the course. Our military is the only thing that stands between freedom and tyranny. God bless our nation and God bless our military.
“No, 0bama is a coward.”
For honoring an agreement negotiated by Bush? Or are you saying that Bush, too, is a coward?
[We will be back there within 10 years!!]
Actually, in about 18 months. Nature abhors a vacuum.
Cool down, y’all. This is pretty much what the Bush Administration had planned, anyway.
Obama’s just trying to get some credit for doing it.
Thousands of support troops will remain to look after our interests.
Wasn't it the liberals that wanted to downsize and under fund the military. Nothing new, Obama is a hard left liberal and doesn't give a damn. Real peace of crap, and I wish the military to tell he to go to hell. Just wishful thinking.
That’s what he was elected to do. I expected no more, no less. A shame.
Maybe, we got cocky.
I just have to remember that God is in control, and He has a plan.
Iraq will become a lovely base for Iran.
What is curious.....with recruiting levels at 100% or more....we are going to have to find jobs for all the military we bring home.... Am I missing something....someone help me out here...... LOL!
Elections have consequences. Some more deadly than others.
