The Media is all over the buzz that the combat troops are leaving Iraq and coming home. There are headlines like "the last convoy" and "going home" but what has into another. Our brothers and sisters are still being murdered everyday by these ungrateful bastards so what difference does it make? Die in one crap hole or the one down the road. The truth is that we will not be completely out of Iraq for a very long time and I firmly believe that Iraq will be the next South Korea, 60 years later and we are still baby sitting those people so where do you think that we are headed with the people of Iraq? The government is corrupt, the Iraqi army is poorly trained and not trusted by the people and those idiot Jihadists that just won't go away, they continue to threaten the stability and welfare of the Iraqi people. The Obama administration should not be getting praise while there are still Soldiers dying on the battle field and who knows how many more that have yet to pay the price. Strict rules of engagement ROE make it difficult for the Combat Troops to properly defend themselves and enforce the law. I still don't quite comprehend why our Civilian leadership sends us into these conflict areas and then take away our ability to take the appropriate actions in order to effectively accomplish the mission. I know that most of you have seen on the news all of those Soldiers that have been prosecuted and booted from service (not the idiots from Abu Ghraib prison) because some politician thought that they were a bit tough on the bad guys, Hello these are people that are shooting at the troops not throwing flowers at them. This is one of the reasons why this country should not be lead by people that have no clue about military service and not even wore the uniform to a Halloween party. Good luck to all who are deployed now and those who are headed there, Stay safe and god bless.
