President Barack Obama tonight made his carefully choreographed “end of the Iraq War” speech, assuring Americans that this fake end, as opposed to the other fake ends, stands as an “historic moment” in American history and a “milestone” that “should serve as a reminder to all the world” of America’s military leadership.
Little attention was given to the 50,000 US troops still fighting in Iraq, beyond a vague mention to “transitional forces protecting our civilians.” The speech rather focused on the illusory military victory and included claims that security problems in Iraq are among “the lowest on record,” in spite of dramatically escalating attacks on the ground.
Obama also praised President Bush for starting the war in the first place, insisting that while he “disagreed” at the time with the invasion “no one can doubt President Bush’s love of country and commitment to our security,” adding that the war was a “remarkable chapter” in the history of America’s commitment to providing “freedom” through military force of arms.
Beyond this, the speech turned into a dual call for a dramatic escalation in domestic spending and for Americans to support his multiple escalations of the war in Afghanistan, insisting that “as with the surge in Iraq” the assorted surges in Afghanistan would eventually make possible more speeches like tonight’s.

Aw, Obama "acknowledged" his "disagreement" with Bush over Iraq, but he's a good guy in general, ya know? And in the end, nobody important was hurt or impoverished by any of the wars, so, really, no harm no foul.
Move along… nothing to see here…
Saddam posed no threat to America before Bush's invasion. Iraq, a country in complete chaos, now poses a real threat to America.
Perhaps Obama should give his Nobel Peace Prize to George W !
Hope and Change…Hope and Change…yada…yada…yada
ATTENTION PEOPLES!!! YOUR REGULARY SCHEDULED HOPE AND CHANGE PROPAGANDA HAS BEEN INTERRUPTED TO BRING YOU THE TRUTH…
Amerika has huge, PERMANENT BASES in Iwreck for a reason…and it ain’t because the troops are leaving!
There will be atleast 50,000 American troops there plus double the number of mercenaries FOREVER (or until the Empire goes bankrupt).
So you’d better get used to you, your kids, your grandkids and their grandkids paying higher taxes and having to deal with much more gummit debt and inflation to support the Iwreck Quagmire. And Amerocons and especially Iraqis will be dying there for decades.
NOW BACK TO YOUR REGULARY SCHEDULED HOPE AND CHANGE BULL SH*T…
Hope and change, hope and change, hope and change….repeat it three time for our Lord and Savior Borat Obammie….
Okay, Barak Obama lies again to American people! there are still over 160,000 troops in Iraq and US is continued occupying Iraq until the Iraqi's resistance overcome 100% and kick the Bush- Chaney_ Obama -Gate occupation hard and forever out of Iraq. There are 55,000 marines + 35,000 to 40,000 mercenaries + 12000 to 15,000 American personals! + 20,000 agents and CIA agents + Iranians -American doll agents about 35,000 + on the top of these numbers the Militias pro- Iran and Israel working there with full support from USA -Pentagon and the white house + 95 US -Pentagon bases all over Iraq . The us-Iranian agent Maliki and his so called "government " is obligated to USA- Pentagon- CIA and Iran because they brought him and his militia " Al Daawa" to the so called the "green zone" . Finalley MR. Obama, GIVE IRAQ TO ITS IRAQI PEOPLE. WE ALL KNOW THE BULLSHIT OF AMERICAN'S POLITICS AND ITS TRICKS.
Just when I think we've hit the bottom of the stupid barrel, we find out there's another one right underneath it. I don't know what else to say really.
I tell ya, Mr. Augustus818, I do think Bushie was right all those years ago when he told us, "Freedumb is on the march."
The war in iraq is over/ The surge in Iraq was a great success just like the surge in Afghanistan will be a great success/ Iraq proves that wars waged by the USG are humanitarian ventures done soley for the purpose of spreading democracy and liberty/ Also:
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
We'll get the same old same old until we sever our umbilical cord to Israel.
I actually pine for the days of Bill Clinton. Sure, he lied about everything under the sun, but it was entertaining. You knew he was telling whoppers, yet you wanted to believe.
Compare that with the simpleton, George W., and the intolerable Obama. Their lies are insufferable and unconvincing.
I suppose it's too much to ask that we elect a president that attempts to tell the truth occasionally.
Honestly, the surge was a battle for improving a War, not winning it (Cheney never wanted to win, what he wanted was to have US in a Perpetual War). Thank God we are getting out, what a waste of our Youth and Treasury set on a bed of lies.
As long as Rahm Emanuel and the other Zionists get what they want – a jackboot pressing down forever on the few M.E. countries that dare support the Palestinian resistance – then the media bosses will repeat Obama's teleprompted text as if they believed it. What goes on in Washington is simply a scripted charade. Meanwhile people are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Israel's agents and bought stooges on Capitol Hill are drumming for war against Iran. Strange how Obama didn't mention that.
I think a really insane person would have difficulty making that speach for and with Obama. But alas a really sane person would have difficulty at painting such a picture too. So Obama must represent the generation of oystrichs. Remember how he "thought" for months before augmenting the military insanity in Afghanistan? He simply evades reality and paints it ever so rosy, no matter what they are. Instead of president he rather should have an employment at a nursery. Ah! but perhaps thart is what is exactly left of the American imperial day dreamings? A nursery of halfly insane, dying, ridiculous species of the human race?
Men who are real arrogant defies what our Lord (Allah) God sais in the Quran:
017.037: And do not go about in the land exultingly, for you cannot cut through the earth nor reach the mountains in height.
017.038 All this– the evil of it– is hateful in the sight of your Lord.
American military comanders don't realize that no power will last on this earth exept the power of the creator. They are runing on this earth oppression & aggression against the weak. They forgot to study history or may be they went blind due to their arrogance. In the past 100 times more powerful civilization went down by the well of Allah because they wanted to be HIGHER than him. They are digging their own graves now..and soon they will take down their bankrupt nation with them. However, they got the chance to repent and fix the unfixable damage they have done to the Muslim nations and to their own before it's too late. How can they enjoy living with blood on their shoulders while the whole earth is in ruin..are they blinds??
A video with a few clips from Obama speeches, BEFORE he got the presidency:
He says "The first thing I will do is bring the troops home, you can take that to the bank." He says he wants the soldiers (called "troops") home by May 30 2009. He says he opposed the war in 2003, 2004-2007, and he will end it in 2009. He says he will bring out soldiers "at a pace of one to two brigades per month, and at that pace we will have our combat troops out in sixteen months."
He LIED. To get votes. Stupid leftists, believing him. The ONLY candidate who would have ended the war was Ron Paul, which is why the media blacked him out from the election news. Even to the point of showing all other Rep and Dem candidates, even those with far fewer votes, but not Ron Paul. Only the LIARS, like Obama, are approved by the media bosses.
A fake end to a very real war based on lies. So what else is new from Uncle Sham? Obama is just shuckin and jivin to that DC "groove". Boom shacka-lacka Boom boom.
MoT: Here is an oldy but a goody.
