Bush raises possibility of years-long Iraq presence
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush held out the possibility on Tuesday of a U.S. troop presence in Iraq for many years, saying a full withdrawal would depend on decisions by future U.S. presidents and Iraqi governments.
I'm sorry, but do the media networks think we're stupid? They break this like its big news, like it wasn't at all expected. Seriously, did anyone really think the US would pull out, if it were up to them? The US has a military base in every other country on earth, if not more than that. You're telling me that anyone was stupid enough to think, even for a second, that the US would suddenly pull out of a country, leave not a soldier behind, in a country which they themselves invaded? You've gotta be kidding me. It shocks me that they report the news, and we buy it. We eat it right up. Its scary, very scary. The generals in the US army tell us they will withdraw from Iraq, and we...we believe it? Do we? A lot of us do. Then they report the news, and its suddenly a shock that they might not, in fact, withdraw. Oh noes! We weren't expecting this...calamity! But, well, whats to be done? Whats to be done is not buy this bullshit in the first place.
According to Wikipedia, the US occupies 702 military bases in 132 different countries. Theres a PDF here with locations of all their bases, accurate of 1999 (would look different now). Also, theres a link here for a chronology of US military activity from 1890 till today. Looking at all this, how is it possible to believe that the US is going into Iraq to help the Iraqi people? They're going in for their interests. If the 'Iraqi people' benefit from this, lucky sandniggers, but if they dont, well f*ck them too. Pull all the troops out of Iraq? You gotta be kiddin' me.
