well the current administration has worked to make good, a promise made by the previous government.
I can only assume that this ambition was determined to be next to impossible and was therefore set up to give opportunity to the republicans to illustrate that Obama is as ineffectual as they were?
Sadly for the Bush-ites, the Obama people have been given a chance to sing from the roof tops in self-congratulation. goddamn it is impossible to get away from Obama-footage last night and today!
there are still 50 000 troops out there though. irrespective of the justification for this, that still strikes as something of an occupation to me. But at least the suggestion of progress being made in a desirable direction affords comfort to many.......
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
