In the most sobering reminder yet that the Iraq War quite simply is not over, the US troops that the Obama Administration carefully redefined as “non-combat” soldiers engaged in heavy combat today in the city of Baghdad.
During the attack on the Iraqi military headquarters in the city, the Iraqi miliary called in a request for ground troops as well as attack helicopters, drones and explosives experts. The attack ended with at least 12 people killed and dozens wounded.
Major attacks in Iraq are nothing new, and they have been happening with alarming frequency over the past several months. The fact that the US “non-combat” troops were called in for what was most assuredly a combat mission, less than a week after President Obama assured everyone that the combat mission was “over” must certainly raise a few eyebrows.
Roughly 50,000 US troops remain in Iraq and officials are expecting to be called on to stay past the end of 2011. In addition the US has an ever-increasing number of security contractors also engaging in combat missions, which are expected to stay for many, many years.

Security contractors=paid murderers granted immunity from crimes they commit on behalf of Anglo-American State sponsored alliance of Terror.
The Iraq War is over…errrr…right?
The President said, US combat operations are over.
He said !
He did, he said !
Lie..Lie..& Lies..The SHEEPLE Americans deserve what's happening to them because they chose to elect corrupt officials who are leading them down the drain..way to go OBAMAMBA..
But wait, wasn't Obama supposed to have won the war? Wasn't he supposed to end the occupation? After all, he campaigned for president on a promise to "bring the troops home the first thing I do" once he was elected. "You can take that to the bank," he said. That is why all those leftist students volunteered to campaign for him. Observe:
And still here we are, U.S. soldiers still killing in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan stepped up and spread to Pakistan, missiles fired against Yemeni soil without trials or a war declaration, and money given to Christian Ethiopia as payment for occupying Somalia when the Islamic courts had defeated the warlords.
What gives, Obama? No, let's ask the real president instead. What gives, Rahm Emanuel?
this is not true, obama said the war is over, and the pres would not lie.
MCCAIN WOULDN'T HAVE LET THIS HAPPEN.
(In alternate universe where McCain was elected, and did let this happen: OBAMA WOULDN'T LET THIS HAPPEN.
