If it was me, I wouldn't have sent them into Iraq in the first place. The Iraq war cost $800 Billion and should be paid for by everyone who voted for Bush twice.

Yes, bring them home and cut military war-time spending! The wars are costing so much that our soldiers are being threatened with losing their pension plans and haven't gotten the wage increases they were supposed to get. If we bring them home, we save lives and money. As a subsequent bonus, those soldiers will start spending their money in the U.S. and give the economy a little more boost in the right direction, and consequently create jobs.

Um Iraq had over 200 US citizens being tortured for being Americans (America helped the iranians in the iraq-iran war.)

I am really surprised he is doing this now because it will probably add a whole point or so to the unemplyment numbers, could go over 10%.
