PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: ALL US TROOPS TO LEAVE IRAQ IN 2011

24 Oct

President Obama is keeping his promise to end the war in Iraq. I’m so happy to hear this. The only thing now I’m praying about is the fact that his job bill is continually shot down, and with the troops coming home, what will they do? How will they become acclimated to their homes, and fall back into place with possibly no jobs. I know some companies keep job available for those in the military, but that’s only a few. Nonetheless, I’m still glad that this is finally happening.

President Obama: “In the next two months our troops will pack up their gear and board convoys for the journey home”

All US troops will be pulled out of Iraq by the end of the year, President Barack Obama has announced.

He ordered a complete withdrawal from the country, nearly nine years after the invasion under President George W Bush.

About 39,000 US troops remain in Iraq, down from a peak of 165,000 in 2008.

The US and Iraq were in “full agreement” on how to move forward, Mr Obama said, adding: “The US leaves Iraq with our heads held high.”

“That is how America’s military efforts in Iraq will end.”
