This story was interesting.
The US has 130,000 troops in Iraq, almost twice the number in Afghanistan.Wasn't Obama supposed to end the Iraq War? Weren't people disgusted with the Iraq War?
The US troop count is due to drop quickly to about 50,000 by this time next year.
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.
