96. But troop levels have increased significantly under Obama.
Edited on Mon Nov-21-11 02:30 PM by EOTE
"Non combat" troops are still in Iraq, and will be for quite some time to come. The only thing is that there's really no way for anyone to discern these non-combat troops from military ones. And troop levels in Afghanistan are about 50% higher than they were under bush. Regardless of what Obama says will be done next year, three years with levels 50% higher than bush is fucking unforgivable. This is a war we never should have been apart of. You said there was no escalation. That's a lie and you know it. Of course you're completely willing to ignore that. You think this president is a liberal. What a joke.\

On edit: non-military -> non-combat
