Obama: Half of US combat troops home within 1 year

Feb 12, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Capital-Journal

President Barack Obama's decision to bring home within a year about half of the 66,000 U.S. troops now in Afghanistan will shrink the force to the size he found it when he entered the White House vowing to reinvigorate a stalemated war.

US combat troops home within 1 year

HISTORICALLY, TROOPS COMING "HOME" ARE USED TO PUT DOWN UPRISINGS CAUSED BY THE HARDSHIPS OF EXCESSIVE WAR-SPENDINGS AS THE PEOPLE JUST WANT REAL CHANGE THAT'S BLOCKED BY THE DESPOTIC CONTROLS OF GOVERNMENT OF A WAR-ECONOMY DICTATORSHIP.

That's right.

Tell the enemy our plan for troop withdrawal.

All the Taliban has to do now is lay low until all the soldiers leave by the end of 2014.

After that they are free to return to their old tricks.

Not that I'm in the habit of taking his side (I'm not), but I believe Obama said 1/2 by 'this time' next year (meaning Feb, 2014) and the rest by the end of 2014.

(I could be wrong, but I still think they're scheduled to all be out by the end of next year).

Not many if people keep voting for the anti-American worker republicans. Boehner didn't even applaud when jobs creation as mentioned by the President in his State of the Union address.
