Obama Continues Iraq War

This story was interesting.

The US has 130,000 troops in Iraq, almost twice the number in Afghanistan.

The US troop count is due to drop quickly to about 50,000 by this time next year.
Wasn't Obama supposed to end the Iraq War? Weren't people disgusted with the Iraq War?

I thought Obama had already promised to remove most of the troops by mid-2009?

This really unpopular war continues, yet it receives almost no mainstream media attention. With Obama's election, the Iraq war ended, because the mainstream media doesn't spend as much time covering it!

One of my favorite stories is "Annual US military spending is enough to buy every American health insurance."

It's amusing how the "pullout date" for the troops is always 1 year away. Someone should make a graph of "time until projected pullout date" vs "time". It's probably a horizontal line.

Hi. I absolutely agree with you. Obama probably forgot what he promised. The war costs are tremendous and as you said there are other more necessary areas that would effectively used the war money.

Take care,
