Their acting like he's caving. HE'S NOT CAVING!!! Dumbass is only bringing troop levels to "pre-surge" levels. First of all I doubt it will happen, second, just 2 weeks ago they were saying "the surge is just getting started." They really think no one's paying attention, don't they? Aaaarrrgggghhhh!!!

1. There's something wrong when you have to breathe a sigh of relief
that he didn't surge the surge.

2. The other night on Hardball
Webb called the reduction reality. Troop levels cannot be sustained.

4. That's our fucking media!
Bring them up on war crimes, FIRST. I hate those weasels. They KNOW better.

I turn on my computer and that's they way it's spun in all the reports. Bush is bringing some troops home. I read that the GOP realized that they had to use our language to obstruct the truth. Because they know the PEOPLE want the troops home. Denial is so much easier than standing in the streets getting arrested and beaten by cops for a few years. So the ones that want to believe-will-it costs nothing-and the goddamn media is to blame.

So, Bush is bringing some troops home! Never mind it's the extra ones.

6. From what I understand...
The reductions will occur from normal attrition in the armed forces, retirements and the end of enlistments. Nothing to see here, move along.
