Back To Iraq

Back To Iraq
OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE PHOTO BY LAWRENCE JACKSON
In August, President Barack Obama visited Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, to mark “the two-year anniversary of the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq.”

President Barack Obama is having a “Mission Accomplished” moment, not that you’d know it based on coverage by the lamestream corporate media whores.

In August, Obama went to Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, on “an official trip marking the two-year anniversary of the end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq.” There he said: “You left Iraq with honor, your mission complete, your heads held high.”

Not so fast. Last week, The New York Times quietly reported that Iraq and the United States are negotiating an agreement that could result in the return of small units of American soldiers to Iraq.

This is eerily reminiscent of President George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” proclamation just months into the Iraq war that then dragged on for another nine years, a fact the media and the progressive talking heads (sorry for the redundancy) mentioned at every opportunity for as long as Bush was in office.

On Dec. 15, 2011, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta declared the combat mission over. For Obama the mission somehow ended in August of 2010?

The truth is, the region remains a tinderbox thanks to the CIA-instigated “Arab Spring” uprisings in Egypt, Libya and Syria in which the United States used agents provocateurs and al-Qaida terrorists as instruments of regime change. And now, our military, overused and weary from perpetual war, is once again being sent back to Iraq.

The perpetual war machine hums merrily along.

    The American civilians and corporations never left Iraq.

    • eddie47d

      The bottom line is that we never should have gone into Iraq in the first place. The big problem with wars once you go in its hard to get out. We still have bases in Germany and Japan and everywhere else. Iraq today is just as chaotic as it was 10-20 years ago so what would going back in solve. Do we enjoy self flagellation?

      • Chuck Evans

        I will not argue about whether we should have sent the Military into Iraq in the first place, however I will say that we should never launch a Military mission, and then tie their hands with Political Rules of Engagement. War is not a Humanitarian mission, and when politicians and the Liberal news people get involved, they tie the hands of the Military. The vast majority of the casualties in Iraq were caused by the restrictive rules of engagement.

      • eddie47d

        Most casualties were caused by IEDs and various other bombs which is still going on today without direct American involvement. Americans can’t stop those hit and run tactics because there will always be someone willing to detonate those mass casualty bombs. Wiping out whole neighborhoods with bunker busters wouldn’t serve our purpose either.

      • Viet Nam Vet 67-68

        If Congress and the President would let the Military do what it is trained to do Combat Zones would only last a few years at most. That is why Viet Nam Was so FK’ed up Johnson and the DemoRATS starting Bombing then Stopping Bombing don’t go into Laos and other countries after the enemy don’t bomb Hanoi or their 7 lane bridge where they got most of their supplies from china and russia. Don’t go or Go and Kill thats what armies have always done and suceeded if left alone to do their job. The only person important to me is our Troops nobody else except our Friendleys.

    Isrow needs us back! Only reason for mid-east deployments has been to serve Isrow! They and AIPAC control the future of this nation.

    • Truth

      I WILL support ISRAEL to my last breath. ISRAEL will ALWAYS find a friend in the United States of America.

      • ROGER, Irish-Canadian LIBERTARIAN

        “Truth” …and it WILL be your last breath if the Zionists have their way. You obviously have not read the TALMUD OR you are a Zionist yourself. Either way you are being deceived and are uninformed about Zionist real intentions : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNMFZZOOZLg

  • Strighttothepoint!!!!!

    ! Agree!!!

  • Frank

    10-20 years? The three tribes in Iraq have been fighting for centuries, just like Afghanistan.

    • John J.

      It didn’t help that Great Britain carved up Africa and purposely drew new country lines which forced opposing tribes into being in the same country.

    • TIME

      Dear Frank,

      You may wish to look deeper into why we really went in to both of these nations,

      Not the contrived rhetoric given out by the Criminals from the City State of DC, nor their Owners who also own the mass media as in ~~ AP. UP, UPI etc.

      Start with POPPIES & BIG PHARM Co’s, then look into what it takes to make { Electric Car Batteries} and what was found in the Afgan nation that will fill that mission to the tune of many Trillions of dollars.. Who profits from these items?

      Peace and Love

  • muhamed kalema

    I don’think that’s RT,because oready america hs got bass in kuwait@saudi arabia,I can’t see mr president 2 send small group in iraq,when thy got 2 bass in region.

    • Concerned American 559

      What language are you trying to write? I surely cannot understand that jibberish. As far as Mr President not sending troops back into Iraq. If Iraq wants our troops in there, he will send them.

  • John C

    It was all smoke and Mirrors we never really left Iraq and there are reasons for this, Iran comes to mind as the Big one right now. Iran threateans the stability of the whole region thier goal is to create the Islamic Caliphate a union of Islamic states to include all of the middle east. Israel is the thorn in their side. Many do not like the special relationship that exists between the USA and Israel in 1948 the US was one of the first countrys to recognize the jewish state and we are hated for that by the Arabs. The land for the jewish state was given by a covenant of God and it is the Arabs who occupy lands given by god to the jews. The clincher is this as long as we stand by Israel and defend her God will not curse the US, he may chastise us but we will remain a friend to Israel, the enemies of Israel will be cursed by God should they come against her. I suggest we do not test this and go against Israel because so far the bible is batting 100% as far as prophesy becoming reality.

    Dear Bob,

    There is a huge difference between George W. Bush’s May 1, 2003 Mission Accomplished Speech and Obama sending a few military trainers to Iraq in the aftermath of the U.S. pull-out. When Bush made his infamous speech, there were already some 120,000 U.S. troops in Iraq in service to that misbegotten, tragic, and wrongheaded war of his. In the years following that speech as the war ground on, and violence against Iraqis escalated to horrific levels, Bush increased the U.S. troop levels to some 200,000. This was an entirely different environment and than sending a couple of training teams to Iraq after the U.S. has pulled out 200,000 troops and brought American combat forces there down to zero. This is why there is no media outcry, although the story is being reported in the New York Times and other major newspapers as you note. It is basically and sadly a non-story, as the U.S. has small military training teams in some 100 countries – not to mention some 800 military bases and/or installations. Both of these realities should be of grave concern as they bespeak the U.S. mission to dominate the world at enormous cost to our treasury and to our Constitution.

    Best, mark

    Probably there were CIA operatives in Iraq all along. It seems the CIA is actually running things rather than the military, and then they send in the military when things get out of control. It’s hard to understand what the grand strategy is when the CIA destabilizes Libya, Egypt, probably Yemen and Syria. We had some level of detente with Libya and Egypt and had come to terms after previous hostilities. Then after destabilization, the new governments are hostile to the interests of the US (regardless of Obama’s definition of hostilities). Yet in Iran, when there was some possibility of supporting a popular uprising to establish a moderate government, the Obama administration did nothing and actually seemed to be supporting the status quo.
    Now Obama will not even negotiate with our ally in the region, Israel, and refusing to talk with their head of government.
    Is this all politics with an attempt to get votes in the November election?
    I really don’t know. It seems Obama is everywhere at once, with the warmongers, and the
    Peaceniks. in the Bastille, and behind the ramparts.

  • mrrzk

    I read an article that stated that Obama GAVE HIS FORIEGN POLICY TO IRAN ON 2009. Could this be true? Why? and what does that mean for us? Is it related to our dead Americans/Ambassador? I find this very
    frightening. help me out. please.

  • david

    Where are we going with the middle east “adventure”. Our military has been outstanding and have proved to be the bravest defenders of freedom on the globe. Translate this to our policy makers in Washington and compare their “undying” support of freedom. DISMAL!! We hung and shot the scums of terror that were responsible for the devastation on our soil. That should have been the conclusion and our winning explanation of intolerance toward impeding on our nation. Today, Obama’s translation of closing Gitmo was to work a plea deal with the most ruthless known killer and move him to Canada with parole in one year to kill again. Obama the Socialist will not be done until he appeases all Muslims.. Lets see where the main street media takes this. Should be a talking point on the presidential debate..

  • Kim

    Does the whole situation in the middle east remind you substantially of Viet Nam and the total confusion that reigned supreme there?!?

    • don

      total cofussoin that when the president an white house want to run the war. leave the war to the miltary . they will win it. we have not won a war since world war 2. why refer to top.
