    6. Link and sample:Despite new mission, US troops still in the fight in Iraq - Yahoo! News


    "WASHINGTON (AFP) – US troops will still be in combat and taking on Islamist militants in Iraq even as the American military moves to an "advise and assist" role with a smaller force, officials said Thursday.

    The withdrawal of the last US combat brigade on Thursday was hailed as a symbolic moment for the controversial American presence in Iraq, more than seven years since the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.

    But while the remaining 50,000 troops will no longer have a formal combat mission after September 1, they will be well-armed and possibly coming under fire...."

    isn't he just trying to please both sides? Not "really" continuing the war, but not "really" pulling out either.

    Obama can't take them out because Bush and Republicans signed contracts and treaties keeping them hostage until Iraq is "rebuilt". We knew this before Bush left office. It was one of the campaign issues.

    How quickly they forget.

    Since when does any mere contract mean a wit to the Boyking or knuckle draggers like you?

    Why doesn't he just go and say "Hey, we did it for CEO bonuses and now we're doing it to you"?

    Aw, you're ruining their fun with reality and truth.

    You know the right wing kooks despise reality and truth.

    Quit being so mean to them.

    No, it's the Republicans who can't keep treaties or contracts. We already know this for a fact. Fuck, they can't tell the truth 10 words into a sentence.

    I should have known that you would manage to say something so stupid that it became the stupidest thing I ever heard eventually.

    Any and all treaties that exist have to be approved by Congress before it is binding on the United States. That means, that even if you were right that Bush did sign a treaty with Iraq, it would not have been binding unless it was approved by 66 Senators, one of which was Obama. If this treaty actually existed, and Obama had some sort of problem with it, he should have said something before he got elected.

    First you try to give Obama credit for what Bush did, and when that turns into an epic failure you try to blame Bush for what Obama is doing. Obama has no obligation to follow the Bush time line, he is doing so because, once he knew all the facts, he decided it was the best course of action.
