Let’s keep up the good work. I’m so afraid that Obummer’s presidential campaign decision to withdraw all troops from Iraq by the end of the year (”They’ll be home for Christmas”) is nothing more than an invitation to Iran/Syria to move in and collapse Iraq into a terrorist state - AGAIN. Every single decision that narcissist arrogant anti-American incompetent makes is wrong, wrong, wrong.
O-Bozo knows he is a One Termed President so this Iraq withdrawal is to leave an unneeded crisis for the 2012 Republican Presidential Winner.
