Thread: Obama declares Iraq war to be over!

    Default Obama declares Iraq war to be over!

    Err...except 50,000 troops will stay.
    If this wasn't a life and death situation it would be hysterically funny.
    What a buffoon.

    The combat troops are gone. The 50,000 remaining troops are there to "help train" and keep the peace and whatever other euphemism one can come up with. They are also under heavy restrictions, which make things even more dangerous for them of course. If enough get killed, after all, the troops will go back to ... clean up our mess? finish what we started? safeguard the progress we've made? You pick one; it'll be one of those.

    On the other hand, Afghanistan doesn't even have to begin "scaling back" until 2011. As I mentioned to someone in chat, what you do right before you slash prices for a sale is you nudge prices up. To use round numbers, if you doubled the number of troops in Afghanistan over the next six or seven months, and then you announced you were sending 25% of them home, people would rejoice... even if the actual number of troops was up from the same time the year before.
    May the wings of liberty never lose a feather.

    Amazing, the power of words. It is not a war, but an occupation. The occupation most certainly is not over. We will continue to be there long after even the "noncombat troops" leave and the puppet regime installed.

    I read somewhere that for all of the combat troops leaving we are hiring mercinaries to replace them. Is there any truth to this?

    You posted this nearly half an hour ago, and not one of our resident RPF awesome photoshoppers has seen this or they would have complied, so I'm bumping it.

    It seems there are not enough photoshoppers around. Perhaps one of the people calling for photoshops would like to pick up the skill

    the picture needs a little work to be convincing, but it's not bad for an amateur job; that hand would also need to match Obama's skin tone as well. The main problem with that pic is that the one Bush is in is fairly bright and high resolution; I'm guessing the picture with Obama was taken inside (darker) and is a bit lower resolution.

    Also the lighting is wrong; the sun should be behind, yet Obama's face is lit up light a Christmas tree. Either way, now I'm nitpicking =p


    In any event, I wonder how much those 50,000 troops are costing us a year, in addition to all the operations they carry out, supplies they need/give out, and others expenses connected with them just being there; I imagine its still and enormous price tag.

    I just chalked this in the center of my university:

    REAL TROOP WITHDRAWAL
    RON PAUL 2012

    I love having extra chalk. Anyone know a good place to get cheap bulk chalk for darker colors? You really use up more chalk than you'd think if you want to make the message big and stand out. It would be great if I could make a new message every night.
