No news can ever satisfy the people on here, lol. There always has to be some underlying conspiracy to ever story. It's really sad to live your life that way.
but this is no conspiracy theory bullsh1t. Obama said himself that combat brigades would remain until the end of next year. there is too much equipment and too many contractors in Iraq for the war in Iraq to just be over. and for the record, the only thing that is ending is "Operation Iraqi Freedom". people need to realize that "the war on terror" is alive and thriving. we are simply shifting our resources from iraq to afghanistan. we will also be, more than likely, putting combat combat brigades in Pakistan.
the truly "Sad" thing is the ease with which the american people are influenced.
don't get me wrong, I'm happy that the Iraq business is soon to be done, but that doesn't help us over here on the mainland because we are still using resources and human capital to fund wars on different fronts.
