    I think many are missing the point as to why U.S. troops are leaving Iraq by December 31, 2011:

    More: Obama announces U.S. troops leaving Iraq by year's end - CTV News

    As I understand it, Obama could have left troops in Iraq past year-end - but because Iraqi leaders refused to give U.S. troops immunity from prosecution in Iraqi courts - Obama is pulling them out. Thank you, Mr. President.

    I don't see how anyone could say Obama is lying or accepting undue praise. He had a choice to make - and he made it.

    I agree...Obama is making the right choice. No way in hell should our troops be there without immunity. Hell, we shouldn't be there at all. Get our troops out of the middle east and Africa! I agree with Obama.

    Obama did the right thing but we don't really need a half dozen different threads discussing it.

    Clearly, the OP has a Masters in International Relations and knows all about such topics.

    Oh.... wait.... no, she doesn't. She's just some clueless twit... and a racist.

    Why not? You righties posted umpteen threads on OWS. Plus, I like to see a thread title with the TRUTH in it.
