President Obama announced today that our troops in Iraq "will definitely be home for the holidays."

I could have sworn he already did this like a year ago.

I'm glad some of the troops are coming home but this really just smells like a ploy to get a 2nd term to me. Hopefully people recognize we still have stuff going on in Afghanistan and the war is far from over.

Even if they do leave, they'll probably be transfered to some other third world country to continue more wars.
