Mission Accomplished II

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…

But we really, really mean it this time

    Same words from a different mouth… Same meaning.. will be the same outcome…..

    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.
