It must be quick withdrawing of all these occupying troops. This genocide and crime against humanity commited by war criminals from usa and nato till now is really enough and it is the only way - to get out at last.

this is a great blog of the truth worthy of being printed in the press.unfortunately the chicken shit liberal press would never print it!soldiers go through hardship to make these,(both party congerssman)feel good about a war that is getting soldiers killed and nothing good coming from it.one day obama or whom ever will say its over and only part of the troops will be brought back.they think the public is too stupid to know that when we leave they will go back to usual?iraq still has 47000 troops there but the msm doesent tell the public this?according to the whitehouse iraq is over!then bring the 47000 troops home!!

Good Point! There is a huge cost to have troops stationed around the world. Local communities frequently charge organizations fees connected with more police protection. At the very least, we need to charge Iraq for our costs. If they don't have the money, they sure have the oil they can pay it with.

But our leaders support a policy where we police their country and finance it on the backs of future generations. Any way you look at it, our policy is just ridiculous.

Our constitution calls for a defense of our country, not to defend other countries.
