Anti-War Crowd Uneasy With Obama's Withdrawal Plan

What Candidate Obama promised and President Obama delivered has many of his most ardent supporters on the left -- from members of Congress down to grassroots anti-war activists -- wondering whether he can be counted on to advance the liberal agenda.  (He's not keeping a campaign promise!!!???)

The president, speaking to Marines in Camp Lejeune, N.C, today, announced that the U.S. will end the Iraq war over the next 18 months, ordering the immediate drawdown of the 142,000 troops in Iraq. The war will officially end on Aug. 31, 2010.

Not soon enough, according to Democrats in congress and anti-war activists. Obama's withdrawal plan will take three months longer than he promised on the campaign trail, and it will leave a residual force of between 35,000 and 50,000 troops in Iraq, which many Democrats view as too high.

Us "Pro-War Hate-mongers" would prefer that we (the US) take its time to get out of Iraq so that the situation there could be as stable as possible before we leave.  In that way, hopefully, there would be fewer Iraqi citizens killed by terrorism and civil unrest.

The "Loving Anti-War" crowd, however, want us out right away.  They don't care how many people are slaughtered in Iraq, so long as it's not associated with an ongoing "war".  

Gotta love them liberals.
