Obama Announces Afghanistan Troop Withdrawal In Speech To Nation

Post by Guest on Wed Jun 22, 2011 10:13 pm

In a much-anticipated prime time address on Wednesday, President Barack Obama laid out the beginning of the U.S. drawdown in Afghanistan, assuring the nation that 33,000 U.S. troops will be pulled out by the autumn of 2012. Five thousand troops will be pulled out immediately, with another 5,000 leaving at the end of 2011.

"My fellow Americans, this has been a difficult decade for our country," he said, according to prepared remarks. "Yet tonight, we take comfort in knowing that the tide of war is receding."

Obama folded again on his promise. This is NOT enough troops to get the hell out of there.

He had 3 options 10, 20 or 50 thousand coming out THIS MONTH!

This before 2012 crap is getting old on all fronts.

cheers

thats great! Although I wish it were more. I feel bad for them having to come home to this mess of a country. I know its better than where they have been, and they will get to be reunited with family, but things are much different than when some of them left to go there. I hope congress buckles down and gives these soldiers some jobs to come home too and the support that they will need.

God bless our troops!

Yeah he folded again. He should have pulled out at least 20,000.

That is what most of his base wanted and I would have been happy. I would have been VERY happy with the 50.
