View Full Version : reducing troops in Iraq - more spin talk from the POTUS

So I hear on the radio today that all this speak during the campaign of "bringing the troops home" from Iraq is just another spin on words

The NPR guy says (which is probably true) that "bringing troops home" really means bringing the COMBAT troops home. But we will still "need" 30-40K troops in the country to do 'various things' not related to combat.

Anyone remember McCain's 100 years statement.

The politicians are all the same - liars and spinmasters - except Ron Paul

I also think I heard some of those combat troops will just be replaced with humanitarian aid (could've been the cartoonish version of Obama I hear in my head).
