The Iraq War Is Over… Lesson for Progressives: Yes We Can.

by Robert Creamer

December 14, 2011

Sometime in the next 15 days, the last American troops will leave Iraq — and the War that began almost nine years ago will finally come to an end.

Today, President Obama addresses some of those returning troops at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The big difference between those troops and many others who have returned from the War in Iraq, is that none of them will be deployed on yet another tour to Mosul or Kirkuk or Baghdad — or any of the other Iraqi cities that became so familiar to Americans over the last decade.

The end of the War in Iraq is a major event in American history, since in many ways, that War was the defining historic event for an entire generation of Americans.

There are those who would minimize the importance of the final withdrawal of our troops from Iraq by pointing to the unfinished business of the War in Afghanistan, or the use of civilian contractors. Those are important issues, but they should not diminish the extraordinary significance of the fact that the Iraq War has come to an end.

Most importantly, Progressives — and all of those who fought for a decade to prevent and then to end the Iraq War — should take a moment to celebrate the fact that they have won a critical, historic battle.

[snip]

The War in Iraq was used by terrorists worldwide to stoke hatred for our country and to recruit young people to their ranks. It sapped our country of trillions of dollars, stretched our military to the breaking point, caused popular support for America to plummet around the globe and dealt a powerful blow to America’s moral authority.

Most Americans realize that the decision to launch the War in Iraq was one of the biggest foreign policy disasters in modern American history.

But there is also a deep well of respect and support for the million men and women — both military and civilian — whose sacrifice allowed a hopeful outcome to be salvaged from a disastrous series of decisions by the Bush Administration.

Progressives must be resolute in preventing Republicans from using cuts in the benefits or care for returning warriors to pay for their tax breaks for millionaires.

And Progressives should do something else as well. While we recognize there is much to be done — let’s take a moment to celebrate an historic success. The end of the Iraq War demonstrates that “Yes We Can!” is more than a campaign slogan. It reminds us once again that everyday people can successfully organize to change history.

2008 U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces bilateral Agreement

Main article: U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement

In 2008, the US and Iraqi government signed the U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement which implments that all US forces would withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009 and that All US Forces would be mandated to withdraw from Iraqi territory by December 31, 2011 under the terms of a bilateral agreement.

On December 14, 2008, then-U.S. President George W. Bush signed the security pact with Iraq. In his fourth and final trip to Iraq, the president appeared with Iraq’s prime minister Nouri al-Maliki and said more work is to be done.

  1. That’s a “success?” We invaded a sovereign country that was of no threat to us, spent over a trillion dollars on its occupation, lost over 4,000 American lives (not to mention all the injured), killed 100s of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians, had our credibility in world affairs completely obliterated, and left Iraq with one of the most corrupt governments in the world.

    So what exactly did we “win?”

    =======================

    I never agreed with the pre-emptive strike of President Bush of Iraq in 2003 (Was Conservative Dem then)

    We should have taken out Muqtada Al-Sadr in Fallujah. Most believe he will be the next “Hussein” with Iran’s blessings.

    And we joined NATO to basically invade Libya (sovereign country) under Obama without Congressional approval. What did we win there?

    What IF Obama invades Iran? Will Obama stand up to Russia?

    What IF Israel is attacked by the Caliphate of countries; Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Libya and Lebanon….Whose side will Obama and the Progressives take?

  2. What if we’re struck by a giant meteor? What if aliens release a mutant virus on earth that eats peoples brains? OH, NO!!! WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!

    Nice Ben.

    Give a comical comment, but AVOID answering the questions I asked you to answer (previous comment you submitted prior to this one) in a sane way.

    Still utilizing Alinsky, eh?

    Location of comments: Natural Resource Defense Council? What, are you camping out with “occupying” Washington D.C. Protestors? Van Jones would be proud!

    Move on Ben.

    Future comments like the one you submitted above will be moved to the “trash” pile.
