The last of the “Surge” troops will be going home next week.
Yo, Liberal Democrats, Surrender Monkeys & Lefty Loons: Fuck you.
The U.S. military said on Wednesday the last of five extra combat brigades sent to Iraq in 2007 would finish withdrawing next week. That will bring the so-called “surge” to an end, while leaving 140,000 U.S. troops in the country.
President George W. Bush ordered the deployment to stop Iraq sliding into sectarian civil war. The troop build-up helped cut violence to a four-year low, the military says. (AP)
PS: That picture of those Iraqis carrying that Marine is one of my favorites.
