USA Invasion Of Iraq: War – March 19, 2003 | Nine Years Later President Obama Ends the Iraq War

NINE years ago today, March 19, 2003, President George W. Bush and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA declared “WAR on Terror” and invaded Iraq.

December 18, 2011 President Obama speaks in Fort Bragg about the last troops getting out of Iraq.

3 Chics wanted to HIGHLIGHT this significant anniversary, because, we know the MEDIA isn’t going to do it.

October 21, 2011, President Obama announces ALL US Troops will get out of Iraq

December 18, 2011 the last troops leave Iraq, nearly a decade after invading and occupying Iraq.

Now presumably Mitt Romney, GOP Presidential candidate and potential nominee is: Romney’s Ready to Bring Back Bush’s Foreign Policy

Romney’s recently-announced foreign policy team is packed with veterans of George W. Bush’s administration, Agence France-Press reports, including Dan Senor, spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority that ruled Iraq after the invasion; Meghan O’Sullivan, Bush’s deputy national security adviser on Iraq and Afghanistan; former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff; Michael Hayden, who headed the C.I.A. during Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program. Those advisers — plus the tone of his speech — show a pushback from Obama’s fairly minor course correction following the Bush administration.

*Nine years after the Iraq War began on March 19, 2003, Mitt Romney has chosen to surround himself with the same people who surrounded George Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. There is no reason to think the outcome for American foreign policy would be any different from the last time this group of neo-conservatives was in office.

Just imagine….  no, Perish the thought of a Romney White House carrying on with the same failed war strategies of the Bush administration!

President Obama and his administration have gotten our troops out of Iraq, and plans are to end the war in Afghanistan by 2014. Stay tuned into 3 Chics Politico for more Updates, photos, and videos.

    Today is the anniversary of the Iraq war.As a candidate for President in 2008, Barack Obama pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end. When he took office in January 2009, there were 142,000 U.S. troops stationed in Iraq. Now, the last of our troops have left Iraq and the Iraqi people have assumed full responsibility for the security of their nation.

    Mitt Romney’s defense budget target is lofty
    March 19, 2012|By Michael Kranish

    Snip
    “The cost appears to be far greater than when Romney first broached the idea several years ago, when the nation was spending closer to 4 percent of GDP on defense. Under next year’s budget, defense spending is projected to be about 3.2 percent – yet Romney has stuck by his 4 percent vow. Put another way, that means Romney proposes spending 61 percent more than Obama at the end of a decade-long cycle, according to the libertarian Cato Institute.”
