U.S. Troop deaths tied with lowest, July 2003. The lies thrown out by Bush and McCain concerning Iraq were so numerous, I can only bring up a few now. One huge campaign lie told by the Bush administration (back in 2004) was "that as the Iraqis stand up, we'll stand down." Since Bush was sworn in again in January, 2005, the total number of Iraqis "standing up" has increased over 418,000 (125K to 542K). At least 50,000 of these are now at Operational Readiness Assessment 1. In January 2005 there were 150,000 U.S. Troops in Iraq, now there are 146,000.
The article also says that without an agreement BY DECEMBER, the U.S. has no legal role in Iraq. If anyone knows what I can do to prevent an agreement from passing, please let me know. The way out of Iraq has always been them asking us.
Reagan, on 12/4/1992 said one report said there 160 border disputes in post-Soviet Russia. I should review them all.
