    Obama: US combat in Iraq over, 'time to turn page'


    Obama: US combat in Iraq over, 'time to turn page' - Yahoo! News

    i'm sure the families of the soldiers still there feel the same way...i'm sure the families of the soldiers who might die over there after this speech feel the same way....

    50,000 troops and its time to turn the page....???

    Yes, they are comparable.

    American troops have no business in any of those places and they should all be called home ASAP.

    "claiming no victory, the president....."
    Wow. Snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory. We accomplished every single objective we had going into the war. And for Obama that isn't a victory. I wonder what victory looks like to him.
    No victory. No congratulations for Pres Bush, who engineered this timetable. Nothing.
    What a total gutless, heartless piece of shit this president is.
