How many US troops are stationed in Iraq?
I know right now we have around 10,000 in Afghanistan. Roughly how many are in Iraq?

2. I think it's about 130,000, last I heard.
With 20,000 that were supposed to rotate out staying on, and another 10,000 supposed to join them.

Of the ones rotating out, some were literally pulled out of line for getting on their aircraft to go home. No shit. Been there at least a year, going home, getting on the plane and jerked out of line to stay another 3-4 months. Fucking Rumsferatu.

My husband reminded me that Rumsferatu also said last year that we'd be down to 30,000 troops by this time.

4. 130,000
But wasn't it like 30,000 of them were supposed to be coming home because they were going to reduce the forces?

They're pissed.
