Obama: Leave Troops In Iraq, For Now

Barack Hussein Obama has slammed President George W. Bush for quite sometime now for conditions in Iraq and has demanded that President Bush expeditiously withdraw U.S. troops fromThat country.

Well, According to a New York Post story (click here to read it) Barack Hussein Obama tried to persuade, in fact demanded, in private conversations with Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.

The conversation occurred in July 2008 when Obama, the anointed one, Obama the debutante, Obama the self proclaimed “CITIZEN OF THE WORLD”, came out of his closet to make his foreign policy tour.

The Post story said;

“According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July. (emphasis added)

"He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington," Zebari said in an interview.

Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops - and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its "state of weakness and political confusion."

Hussein Obama obviously wants to keep as many American troops in Iraq as possible until if and when he wins the election so he can claim credit for bringing American boys and girls home.

If Obama gets his way, can you say; OBAMA LIED, AMERICANS DIED!

The reality is that American troop numbers in Iraq have been reduced from about 171,000 last Fall to about 145,000 today. Why? The surge worked, though it should have been done long ago and many more lives might not have been lost, it still worked.

And Iraqi military forces are stepping up steadily, in capability as well as numbers. They have gone from 115,000 two years ago to 229,000 today. They are also getting better at fighting the enemy.

According to, (click here) this week the province of Kadisiya, south of Baghdad, became the tenth province out of 18 to transition to Iraqi command from American control.

But Obama is not man enough to admit that the troop surge worked.

Iraqi civilian deaths due to terrorism and hostile action by the enemy are much lower than it once was. Of course, any deaths caused by terrorism are unacceptable, but once source said that terrorism related Iraqi civilian deaths in July were 500 plus. This is down from 3,700 at this time 2 years ago. American military deaths are down as well.

Hussein Obama and his fellow Democrats keep chanting their anti-Bush mantra that the “real war on terrorism” is in Afghanistan.

Well no thanks to Barack Hussein Obama, it looks as if more American troops will be freed up to help decimate if not exterminate the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.
