Middle East

Obama's Views on Iraq/Afghanistan War

Obama pointed out the fact that this war with Iraq has been ongoing lasting longer than World War 1, Word War II, and the civil war. Because it is so continous, the country's economy is going down hill due to the fact that the United states may spend 2.7 trillion on this war. The war basically ties into many of the issues that we are facing today. Obama wants to put an end to the war and plans to do so with his 16 months troops removal plan. The removal of the troops will be at a pace of one or two brigades a month. Taking into consideration, more than 4,000 americans have died, and more than 60,000 have been injured. What is the cause of the war, and why is there still no progress? I agree with Obama because the war is demonstrating the block spot of the our country. The war is dragging the country down hill in a sense because it is triggering the economy, financial need and most important it has a negative impact on most of the citizens. In order to progress, obviously we must get rid of the war.
