Little fanfare for Iraq war anniversary

Mar 19, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WLFI-TV West Lafayette

Almost seven years after the first bombs in the war to oust Saddam Hussein, Iraqis went about their business Friday with little observance of the anniversary, looking to the future with a mixture of trepidation and hope.

There's little fanfare because it's Obama's war now.

You betcha!...military comes home, unemployment no higher than 8%, help to prevent more home foreclosures...The only "change" is more dreadful debt and increased taxation which will be overwhelming and cause the loss of more jobs!!

Nobody cares about America being at WAR, it doesn't even get mentioned on the news most nights.

obama has turned his back on the WAR, THE MILITARY AND THEIR FAMILIES.......right along with the 23 - 25 MILLION UNEMPLOYED AND THEIR FAMILIES.

let the military fight and die....let millions of americans lose their homes and put their families in homeless shelters while standing in welfare lines trying get some food.

screw all this crap.....obama has got to have a win in the game he's playing in the whitehouse.

They're so obtuse they don't even know the captain of the ship put the banner up.

"We have difficult work to do in Iraq. We are bringing order to parts of that country that remain dangerous."[9]
"Our mission continues...The War on Terror continues, yet it is not endless. We do not know the day of final victory, but we have seen the turning of the tide." George W. Bush

In January 2009, Bush said that "Clearly, putting 'Mission Accomplished' on an aircraft carrier was a mistake.

Bush has more honor is his little finger than all the numbnut far left politicians and current president and those that support these losers combined.

No, he only said he was wanted by the US dead or alive. Too bad Clinton let him go twice.

It doesn't matter to most Americans either. He hasn't made the attacks on American interests that he made from 1990 to 2001. W cornered him in the mountains where he lives in caves and killed and captured many of his followers. You seem to leave the part out. Of course, the left is always conveniently leaving out the truth.

Haliburton employs 75,000 world wide. There have been investigations on these aligations, nothing found. Haliburton is located in many countries with the headquarters in Texas, just ask Gore.
