    Well, I got mixed feelings.

    For one, all combat troops have NOT left Iraq. All allied combat troops maybe. But Al Qaida and Iranian intell troops are still there. Wonder what they're waiting on.........

    Oh, yeah, for us to leave. Which we're doing. Not gonna be good in a year or two.

    BUT.....if we must be led by Obama for another 2 years, then I'm happy for our troops that they are coming home and won't have to fight 1 more day under the piss poor leadership of this clown we have for a CIC.

    The only reason that withdrawal of troops is feasible now is due to the success of the Bush-Petraeus Surge, which Senator Obama opposed.

    I was just about to say this. How is the promise kept if our troops are still over there?
