Obama and Aug. 31, 2010

Under a new plan proposed by President Obama and his office it has been announced that a large majority of U.S. combat troops will be out of Iraq by Aug. 31, 2010. They even went as far to say all the troops will be out by Dec. 31, 2011. I remember him talking about this plan before even getting voted in so I am glad that he is following through. The process of getting troops out of a place as conflicted as Iraq is complicated for a lot of reasons. I just hope that this dead line is actually met before any more excuses are thrown out there. It is refreshing to see an actual time line instead of general guesses, lets hope that he keeps his word. This will be good news to anyone with loved ones currently fighting. It's a huge mess over there, I hope things transition over smoothly, Wishful thinking but still....
