I just can't not say something about this. I am not an Obamanite, but I am not unilaterally opposed to him either. However, the Democratic party campaigned on how they are going bring our military stateside. They were hypercritical of even being overseas, specifically Iraq.
Now today I'm watching Face the Nation...and the Obama Administration (specifically in VP Biden's interview) is talking about how we will be engaging the enemy moreso than ever and Americans should expect a upswing in casualties.
What a damn cop out.
Everyone with a tactical and strategic minded brain could see Iraq was the next best strategic step in what will likely be a hundred year battle against Jihad, including many Democratic politicians. They used getting out of Iraq as a focal point of their campaigning, and now totally backstep, foot in mouth, preparing American's for more US casualties, spinning the situation beforehand so they don't lose support. (political support for the new administration, not the troops, just to be lear here)
When these casualties increase, remember the hypocrisy.
For the record I'm incredibly glad the Saddam regime is gone, but thoroughly disgusted Iraqis cant handle it from here on their own. I was ready to get our military out of there a while ago.
