    Sources tell ABC News that the president will announce today that US troops in Iraq will draw down to zero by the end of the year.
    A White House official says that at approximately 11:30am today, President Obama convened a secure video conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to talk with him about this news.

    I would say dont celebrate at all until we see what the results bring. This may not be as good a thing as you all think it will be.

    The US finally won the war in Iraq, well it'll be nice to see our troops back for the Holidays. Hopefully the Afghan war will end as well

    Can't help it, I try to be as impartial as possible... that's why I choose sources who lean both ways.

    edit: @camurso_
    I'm sure iran can't help but spread the tentacles as soon as possible, I think it really depends on how things happen.

    Who is they? The US. Keep betting. We arent going to start WWIII. Plus Obama has no balls. He is almost as bad as Clinton, who reduced the US military to the weakest/smallest it had ever been. I wish we could all get along. World peace, which will NEVER happen, would be bliss.

    They aren't doing a whole lot in Iraq. The big problem is Afghanistan and we are apparantly there to protect an oil pipeline because Al Kaida apparantly went amok against us so the job wasn't getting done.

    Bigger problems are Syria and Iran. I can't spell today so no need for correction on these shitty middle eastern words but anyway the Aiyatolla is a madman and needs to be put in his place. Save the risk of me being banned by a 15 year old on here, but you know in Iran they murder people if they find out that they are homosexual/gay and realistically I don't feel that anyone has the place to murder anyone. Plus both of those countries use lethal force against peaceful protestes.

    Sure here in the USA we complain when police crack down on protests and use pepper spray and force people off the road, but at least they aren't blatantly firing rifles straight at them. Pepper spray in your eyes? you will be ok. I haven't heard of anyone dying or going blind from that.

    At least Gaddafi is out but him and Saddam I didn't see the purpose in killing. Keeping them alive and locked up for life sentence would have done just as well and they could have given out more information. For those of you pro death penalty on the other hand I guess one would argue that they could possibly be released and then regain power again in the future which would be the core problem with that. And my ideals aren't stemming directly from some kind of American Christianity, that came later. I learned to respect life in public school and we don't pray or get taught about religion/God there at all. It is never mentioned at all in public school.

    Anyway breaking news for pulling out of Iraq? I guess it is interesting to close up all the rumors that we are using it as a strategic military place in the middle east, but I guess people now will say that the Iraq government made a deal that we can use it in the future if we want lol. I mean hey, ever hear of Qatar?

    Edit the title, I could care less if you did... as I can not. I just do not want to be accused of sending a lean in the title.

    First of all the weakest it has been has been under Thomas Jefferson when he scrapped the navy built up by Adams to fix the huge deficit they were facing, huh I see similarities, oh thats right we are in a deficit because we are fighting technically 3 wars right now. Having no balls is different from seeing how there is no benefit in being there anymore and realizing that he wants to be re-elected again.
    We should have pulled out of Iraq when hussein was killed and let them figure it out while providing monetary incentive for them to turn democratic or at least favoring trading with the U.S. and moved those troops to afghanistan. Would have saved a lot of time, well at least now Obama will probably be re-elected.
