Watch: Historic Final Battalion Leaving
U.S. Army Stryker armored vehicles cross the border from Iraq into Kuwait on Wednesday, Aug. 18. The U.S. Army's 4th Stryker Brigade is the last combat unit to leave Iraq as part of the drawdown of U.S. forces. President Barack Obama had set a goal of reducing the number of American troops in Iraq to 50,000 troops by Sept. 1. (Maya Alleruzzo / AP) B4B Note: But he's early !
Although seeing our combat troops coming home is probably the greatest day so far in Iraq ever since the Bush Regime's unjust and some say illegal invasion of the country, you can expect to hear a wide variety of reactions to yet another kept promise and historic accomplishment of President Obama. Many, like me, are filled with absolute joy seeing the last of combat troops leaving and recognize this as the major milestone that it is. I couldn't help but notice how smoothly and efficiently our troops were able to vacate the country, contrary to the Bush Regime and the Regime's pundit supporters who, for years, claimed that an exit of troops and equipment would be a near insurmountable feat. Wrong ! We'll also hear rants from the Republican war hawks who will claim that we should have stayed for a number of agenda driven reasons, not limited to but including the fake " Iran will now come and get US " rants. Then, we'll hear from those on the Left who will rant and rave about how disappointed they are that 50,000 troops are still remaining, despite the fact that those troops have been ordered to not be involved in any warlike activities at all. If the Sunnis and Shiites start going at each other, our troops are ordered not to get involved. Of course we'll hear the standard " does this spell doom for Obama/Dems " for miscellaneous reasons from both sides. We'll hear the fake, manipulating polls...we'll hear the " we've abandoned the vulnerable Iraqis ", although Iraq has the common epithet, the "Cradle of Civilization", as it was home to the earliest known civilization on Earth, been in existence for thousands of years, and managed to survive without America's presence for many, many centuries.
The media...blogs and every group with an agenda, every pundit...and every hater... will try to spin this major accomplishment in a negative light to suit their purpose. Bottom line though ...today is a Great Day for America...for our heroic troops...and yes...for Our President. And while everyone was stuck on the stupid issue of the mosque, the whole time our President was busy taking care of REAL issues.
Bringing Our Troops Home !
Thank You To Our Soldiers !
