IT'S FINALLY OVER! President Obama REVEALS The Last American Convoy Has EXITED Iraq!

Earlier today, President Obama issued a statement revealing that the last American convoy has exited Iraq, effectively ending the Iraq war.  Get the deets inside.....

On Thursday, U.S. soldiers were photographed rolling up the flag of American forces in Iraq and slipping it into a camouflage-colored sleeve, symbolically ending the Iraq war. 

And in a statement on his website today, President Obama said, 

Early this morning, the last of our troops left Iraq. As we honor and reflect on the sacrifices that millions of men and women made for this war, I wanted to make sure you heard the news. Bringing this war to a responsible end was a cause that sparked many Americans to get involved in the political process for the first time. Today's outcome is a reminder that we all have a stake in our country's future, and a say in the direction we choose.

Thank you.

Barack

Although nearly 170,000 American soldiers were on the 500 bases across the country, only around 150 U.S. soldiers will remain after Dec. 31 at the U.S. Embassy near the Tigris River.

Our thanks go out to all of our soldiers for their hardwork and dedication.

co-sign to ant.dog...this is how we got our "freedom'...this is an unfortunate, sad true reality. and Never going back is a lie that you should not believe, Brit. sooner or later, we will have to go back. its politics at play and sooner or later we have to clean up the clean up. its the way this game is played.

And good job Mr. President

And good job Mr. President for creating more messes (i.e. Afghan war, Yemen war, Syrian war, war with Egypt, war with Libya). And great job Mr. President on the economy and bailing out Wall Street after condemning them. That was real smooth. Unemployment is at a whopping 13% now (19% if you're black). And excellent job on not closing Gitmo like you promised. Oh yeah....and excellent job Mr. President for signing the Patriot Act after condemning the Village Idiot (Bush) for doing the same. At least you're still black......and as long as you're black, it doesn't matter what you do in the White House.

Good for you!!!! Enjoy him

Good for you!!!! Enjoy him while you can because you can guarantee that he WILL be redeployed in the coming months. We must remember, this is an election year, and politicans are going to do whatever they can to make themselves look good up until the day we cast our votes. The political game doesn't change despite the change of the politicians.

Truth is truth, Shorty. And

Truth is truth, Shorty. And there is ALWAYS a need for the truth. If ignorance is bliss, then YOU should really be happy right now. But if no one were going back, then they would close down the military base, right?

PUH-lease!!! How ignorant

PUH-lease!!! How ignorant can y'all be? I mean really?? Just because troops are coming home for the holidays DOES NOT mean that it is over! We (the U.S.) have military bases in over 150 countries! WE NEVER LEAVE!!! Take it from someone who was raised AND served in the military. Secondly, Bush did eff things up....no doubt about that! But Obama has gotten us into 7 more wars since being in office....and there are more to come (watch Europe and China) All of which - like Bush - were done unilaterally (without the approval of congress). Bush signed PATRIOT ACT I, and Obama signed PATRIOT ACT II! Bush claimed the victory of capturing Sadam Hussein, and Obama claimed the victory of killing Bin Ladin (although we haven't seen Bin Laden since 2002). In terms of political policy, what is really the difference between the two of them???? Wake the hell up, People!!! This ish is far from over.

Thank you, people gave their lives, and of course YBF posters turn that into negativity. These soldiers are coming home with "issues" and America needs to help this Iraqi veterens. The U.S. HAS to continue to help Iraq rebuild, train their soldiers, cannot invade a country, then bounce without helping a country rebuild. I am thankful that this war is finally over.

Yes, they come home with

Yes, they come home with major issues. I have many friends and family that have deployed 4 and 5 times. It is traumatic on them. My cousin's husband, whom she had been married to for only a couple of months got killed on Valentines Day a few years back. Soldiers suffered, families suffered, communities suffered. They are young and come home with so many disorders and ailments. Fort Hood is one of the major military installations in this nation and now we have a community of disturbed soldiers. Things like the Fort Hood shooting has devastated our community. This war has devastated our community.

The soldiers come home with

The soldiers come home with issues because they've been forced to do unnatural, immoral acts for extended periods of time. No human is built to shoot a gun at a moving target that just happens to be a person. That is why the American public needs to hold their govt to acct so soldiers don't have to fight w/out just cause (defense of our nation). Which in the case of Iraq, there was no such cause.
