Skip to comments.Obama Giving Up In Iraq; To Make It Official Tomorrow; All Brigates Out In 16 Months.
Posted on 01/21/2009 4:19:35 PM PST by MindBender26
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.
‘Hey, its only his first day ... give the guy a chance to really and totally mess up ... say a week?”
LOL...so true... but I’m impatient....
What do you mean “begins?” It’s been happening for the last 4 months now.
During the transition, a lot of so-called conservative east coast pundits assured me that this Obama fellow was going to govern as a moderate.
Turns out he's more of a Eugene McCarthy/Jimmy Carteresque gay-loving, freedom-bashing, socialism-foisting, grievance-mongering surrender monkey.
16 months is a lot better than “immediately” like he told the DUmmie voters at the beginning of the campaign.
A lot can happen in 16 months that may make him change his mind (think Iran)
I know that....you know that. But “the one” is going to pay off his supporters, and I don’t want anyone who served to feel it was worthless. I don’t want families of the fallen to feel that way. I honor their service - even if the current CIC doesn’t give a rip about national security.
sorry...i have believed my whole life intil the last 6 months...GOD is out to lunch or on break...hell is about to break loose...if this were 1776 we would all still have a queen today...
I find it amazing the number of FReepers that will fall for MSM propaganda.
No. I am saying that I am not surprised because 0bama is a coward.
I could care less if the Queen of the NY Senate negotiated a 16 month time frame.
In his second day in office, 0bama has caved into the left, spotlighted to our enemies that we are weak and painted himself in a corner. Good work.
I am skeptical that it is really an absolute pullout. But if true, I will never forgive him.
I agree. Everyone should cool down and think about it. We already won and kicked the living shiite of the insurgents thanks to Petraeus’s surge and Bush. Time to go, and get ready for our impending war with say, China or Iran.
It’s Hussein who wants the glory.
How is this different from the plan that Petraus had already negotiated with the Iraqi government?
BS jenny. The Bush Administration was not going to broadcast a timetable for all the world to see and Obama is pulling out ALL BRIGADES! Sounds like he is leaving no presence behind to me.
And please..don’t tell everyone to ‘calm down’. Obama and the dems are going to destroy this country in short order and we had better get mad and vocal about it FAST!!
hey dude...nobama is not even an african american...he is a closet muslim
Our only salvation is to look to the Lord,
This is going to be a long, long 4 years. Hopefully, at the end of four years, there will be enough survivors to rebuild America.
He must snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as soon as possible so that he can blame it on Bush.
I'll bet He says the same thing about us.
Liberals are so concerned with killing unborn children, grabbing guns, ousting religion from every corner of society, destroying the family, indoctrinating the young and impressionable, fawning over their supposed "green" tendencies (BARF!!!), and just generally living lives of immorality and degeneracy that they cannot see how counter-intuitive their own anti-American, anti-military policies are...
When the muzzies come over looking to force sharia law on everyone, THEN, and ONLY then, will the left-wing LIBTARDS understand how F***ING IGNORANT they have been all along...
