Mitt Romney Central Says Thank You as Combat Mission in Iraq Ends

U.S. soldiers run to Kuwait border as combat mission ends in Iraq, Aug 18, 2010

After seven long years and five months, today marks the formal end of U.S. combat troops in Iraq. For us, it is not a day to delve into Iraqi war history, the politics involved, the debate on Iraqi preparedness to govern their nation, or U.S. involvement as Iraq moves forward.

To our courageous U.S. military and all coalition forces who were part of Iraq’s liberation, Mitt Romney Central wishes to say…

Thank you!

★ To the 50,000 troops who remain in an advisory capacity, thank you!

★ To those who will deploy in the future to replace said troops, thank you!

★ To the wounded, thank you!

★ To the disabled, thank you!

★ To the brave families and loved ones who support you, thank you!

★ To the soldiers who gave their lives for freedom, thank you! We honor your memory.

Goodbye Iraq! August 14, 2010

Last US Combat Brigade Leaves Iraq

Your courage, perseverance, sacrifice, and patriotism are forever emblazoned on our hearts.

    Political gimmick.

    Ron is right, again:

    50,000 US troops remain in Iraq, and they are still receiving combat pay. One soldier was killed in Basra just last Sunday, after the supposed end of combat operations, and the same day 5,000 men and women of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Hood were deployed to Iraq. Their mission will be anything but desk duty. Among other things they will accompany the Iraqi military on dangerous patrols, continue to be involved in the hunt for terrorists, and provide air support for the Iraqi military. They should be receiving combat pay, because they will be serving a combat role!

    Of course the number of private contractors — who perform many of the same roles as troops, but for a lot more money — is expected to double. So this is a funny way of ending combat operations in Iraq. We are still meddling in their affairs and we are still putting our men and women in danger, and we are still spending money we don’t have. This looks more like an escalation than a draw-down to me!

    August 31, 2010 – Instead of answering a question on whether Obama would give President Bush credit for the success in Iraq when he gave his speech, Robert Gibbs mocks Gretchen Carlson:

    God bless our troops and the coalition forces who helped them!
