Yesterday, in a speech to disabled veterans, Barack Obama announced the beginning of the end of combat in Iraq:
Our commitment in Iraq is changing — from a military effort led by our troops to a civilian effort led by our diplomats.
I certainly hope he’s correct, and that our boys and girls come home as quickly as possible, but for some reason, this sounds very familiar…

Same words from a different mouth… Same meaning.. will be the same outcome…..
And how do you feel now?
Cautiously optimistic, with a pragmatic dose of pessimism.
I’m glad some of the troops have come left, but saying that all combat troops have left is a trick of nomenclature at best. The deaths continue, but hopefully the rest of our boys and girls will come home soon.
