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.
Ooops, sorry all for the double post...
Visions of Viet Nam all over. This will be Obambi aka Soetoro’s Waterloo.
I do have Obama derangement syndrome. Caught it yesterday watching his divisive speech, his racist preacher’s prayer and his supporters booing President Bush!
I look forward to treating Obama the same way that they have treated President Bush for the last 8 years and will spending my time and money doing so!
This guy will be the death of this country. Up next: Bush’s New World Order.
And this is a surprise to whom???
God Bless your son for serving. Afghanistan is fixing to calm down though because all the Afghanistan jihadees will begin pouring back into Iraq as soon as Obama pulls our combat forces out. Mark my word!
He sure isn’t wasting any time is he? OK, America - here’s the change you said you wanted - I sure hope it works out somehow, but I’m not optimistic at this point.
Absolute insanity... And, a slap in the face to ALL of our brave troops who have sacrificed thus far. Knowing who Obama’s allies are in the Muslim world (esp. the direct connection through Raila Odinga with the terrorists) this doesn’t surprise me a bit.
This is just one more way to destroy America’s standing in the world by turning our back on the Iraqis we vowed to help. Obama could care less if the terrorists move back in — waiting all the while we clear out.
Obama’s supporters are delusional when it comes to understanding the threats that face us within the world, and Obama is COUNTING on the threats in order to secure more power for himself.
May God bless our brave troops, as well as all the U.S. and foreign nation support troops and civilians. May they know that there are those of us who really do appreciate all they’ve sacrificed for us thus far in the Middle East. May God bless the Iraqis as well - please remember no matter what propaganda you hear there is about half of this nation - if not more that do NOT agree with this President’s decisions...
Terrorists who only have to wait now....wait for a few months until American forces are gone.
Shades of the Cambodian killing fields that the liberals in America are DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR CONSIDERING WE WON EVERY CONFLICT OVER THERE!
BUT WHO KNEW THIS???? The press corp did not TELL US!!
Thanks press corp.....for the millions that were killed when South Vietnam was taken over after you flooded our nation with negative information ONLY!
And special thanks to one WALTER CRONKITE who could only report on body bags and NEVER ON SUCCESS. I was one of the kids who was fooled and LIED TO BY YOU and bought your CRAP hook line and sinker! Never again.
We have the same press corp back...girlish men, full of stupidity and cowardice who have NEVER worn a uniform and who have NO KNOWLEDGE that freedom is NOT FREE!
I HATE, DESPISE and will NEVER FORGET THIS MOMENT!
Open note to silly Barack...........YOU ARE EXACTLY AS STUPID AND IMMORAL AS YOU and your sick party appear.
THERE IS NOTHING GOOD about YOUR PRINCIPLES!
You are willing to have babies ABOUT TO BE BORN literally PULLED APART so that they will DIE inside mommy (bleed to death) so as not to be called murder (outside the mommy) but rather PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION (inside the mommy death)-IMO--THAT MAKES YOU FLAT OUT EVIL.
And now you are willing to cause the FALL of IRAQ, to TRASH the efforts of military men and women who sacrificed the ULTIMATE to help Iraq gain freedom and rid their world of terrorists havens.
YOU ARE BLIND, OBAMA.
You are not man enough to be our commander in chief.
It should not be surprising to ANYONE that you refused to go and visit our sick and injured troops overseas while you were there because there was NO PRESS ALLOWED. My goodness....why should you, our narcissist primo leader, ever waste time doing anything that does not give you a return....IE...the press corp fawning over you.
You MAKE ME SICK.
NO WONDER YOU STAYED WITH REV WRIGHT FOR 20 YEARS.....YOU DON'T POSSESS ANY ETHICS OR MORALS.
I am SO WORRIED about our troops and our system of defense with a creepy immature unformed blob of liberalism, such as you, running our nation.
Rant/ (for now)
Yeah, but the part before we win is not going to be pretty. Of course, starting yesterday, it's already not pretty.
The Iraqi army will be overtaken and slaughtered by Iran. Thanks Obama!
We are going to lose in Afghanistan also. Anyway, a far more dangerous, and nearby, danger is the situation in Mexico. The whole coutry is on the verge of becoming a failed state.
For an example of what God does to nations that enjoy His blessings only to turn their collective backs on them, I recommend the ping-pong-like example demonstrated by the Jews in the Penteteuch, Judges, Samuel I & II, Kings I & II, and Chronicles I & II. The apocryphal histories of the revolt of the Macabees, coupled with the falling away and legalism of the saducees and pharisees in the intertestamentary period and in the New Testament also provide great examples.
And it's not just the Jews -- it's all of us. If you're asking what God is doing, you have to admit the possibility that President Zero and his Merry Band in Congress are God's punishment on our nation for collectively ignoring and denigrating him at every opportunity in our modern culture.
This is what “the people” voted for.
Let those who voted for Obama send their kids to war next time to clean up the resultant messes.
God is in control and He has a plan, but not everything that happens on this planet is His perfect will, and there are times when He has not prevented awful things from taking place. I was just hoping we could avoid all that, but apparently not. I certainly don’t see why He would allow a pro-abortion president to take office so more of His babies will be killed. The logic escapes my simple human brain.
The real result is surrender to Iran. Elections have consequences so enjoy our first president who is an “I don’t give a damn” leftist.
It’s always give them enough rope ....
If I were you, I would opt for PTBOSD. Then you can say, ‘it is Obama’s fault’ and it will be true! ;-)
The one hope I held out for this country was that Obama knows if we are attacked after his policies are in effect, it will be all on his shoulders. No blaming Bush.
I guess I was wrong.
