Obama: By end of year, ‘America’s war in Iraq will be over’

President Obama:

“As promised, the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of year.  After nearly 9 years, America’s war in Iraq will be over. Over the next two months, our troops in Iraq– tens of thousands of them — will pack up their gear and board convoys for the journey home. The last Americans soldiers will cross the border out of Iraq with their heads held high. proud of their success and knowing that the American people stand united in our support for our troops. That is how America’s military efforts in Iraq will end. “

UPDATE AT 3:35:

Here’s the response of Mitt Romney, the GOP frontrunner:

“President Obama’s astonishing failure to secure an orderly transition in Iraq has unnecessarily put at risk the victories that were won through the blood and sacrifice of thousands of American men and women. The unavoidable question is whether this decision is the result of a naked political calculation or simply sheer ineptitude in negotiations with the Iraqi government. The American people deserve to hear the recommendations that were made by our military commanders in Iraq.”

Romney aside, I think the news deserves an early kickoff of Friday Traveling Music (a separate version will be posted later:

Yes and no. It’s what’s called a SOFA (Status of Forces Agreement). In it, the US and the other nation spell out the legal status of soldiers in the host country and how legal and criminal disputes involving those soldiers will be handled.

IIRC, there are SOFAs in place in most of the nations where we have permanent bases (UK, Germany, Japan, Spain, South Korea).

I don’t know a lot of details on what’s in a SOFA or how it is negotiated, but I know that they exist and that they’re used for the purposes I mentioned.

The American people do stand united in support of our troops. A lot of us, however, think this war was a Vietnam type mistake and, in the years to come, will conclude all of our soldiers who died there died for nothiing. To make matters worse, many of us think the same conclusion will be made about all of the American lives lost in Afghanistan. And, to make matters even more worse, the suspicion grows that The Military-Industrial Complex is actually in the saddle here and will ride our Military into still more useless wars strictly for profit. And, to maximize the pain, it appears that neither Obama or any of the Republican candidates will say one word about this.

I’m guessing it will get very interesting once we leave:

– “I applied to the call of Sadr to participate against American occupiers,” said Salah Emarah, 35, who traveled from his home in Basra to march in the parade. “This is a peaceful demonstration against American occupiers. Sadr asked us to remain peaceful. At the end of the year, according to Iraq, the occupiers will leave. If they don’t, we will wait for orders.”

– “All the people in Sadr City are waiting for orders from Muqtada Sadr,” said Muhammad Fuad, a 28-year-old carpenter watching the parade. “And we have people all over Iraq — northern, southern.”

– “I came here on the orders of Moqtada al-Sadr to help kick out the occupiers from our country,” said Alaa Hussein, 21, a student taking part. “If the government keeps American troops here we will consider them an illegitimate government.”

– “We will not accept even one American soldier staying,” said Adnan al-Mussawi, one of the demonstrators. “Occupation has not benefited us at all, it is our religious duty to kick out every American soldier.”

I, however, hope to hire a bunch of these vets as they fit well into this industry, are accustomed to physical stress and are generally less fearful than most young Americans. They also possess a sense of responsibility as well as an understanding of the difference between right and wrong and the grey area in between. Both are valuable commodities which are becoming rare.

C’mon back y’all, you may not see your families a whole lot more than you do now working for me but you’ll be paid well for the effort and respected for your previous efforts. Plus you can revel in the fact that your livlihood is one that 99% of people simply cannot do

Looks like Steve Jobs wasn’t too happy with the president…

“You’re headed for a one-term presidency,” he told Obama at the start of their meeting, insisting that the administration needed to be more business-friendly. As an example, Jobs described the ease with which companies can build factories in China compared to the United States, where “regulations and unnecessary costs” make it difficult for them.

Jobs also criticized America’s education system, saying it was “crippled by union work rules,” noted Isaacson. “Until the teachers’ unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform.” Jobs proposed allowing principals to hire and fire teachers based on merit, that schools stay open until 6 p.m. and that they be open 11 months a year.

Great News! ….but who will protect the oilfields that are vital to our supply? I cannot see a need

Japan, Germany, and ENGLAND…?
