Do you think our forces really left Iraq?

Hey, everyone! Do you think our forces really left Iraq? No way! They Practically every second soldier has stayed here. Our neighbors are waiting for their son for almost three years. Not long ago it turned out that he’s been employed by some American civil security firm acting on the Iraqi territory.
You won’t believe but there are a lot of those US companies packed with our former soldiers in Iraq. They’ve livened up begun extending its stuff as soon as US forces’ withdrawing from Iraq started. Our neighbor says that their disposition place’s enclosure was overlaid with leaflets about employing in such firms. And their life and occupation doesn’t differ much from military service.
So it turns out that our Mr. Monkey President has deceived all of us. Not long ago we were glad much that this Iraqi bloody epic is over. No ****. Nothing’s over. Those cunning lads from Pentagon just changed a signboard. But there are the same old holes under it.

The suggestion that "All of our forces and people have been removed or are going to be removed from Iraq and returned to the States" is VERY misleading - edging on a lie.
Our *combat forces* came back - and not all of them, either . . . so "Most of our combat force" came back.

aye, "combat forces" include basically infantry and armor, with a few other MOS thrown in. the vast majority of troops are either combat support or combat service support and these CS and CSS troops are not affected by the "we will bring home the combat troops" crappola.

TPTB basically took advantage of John Q Public's ignorance of military terminology to foist a lie onto the american people. They knew damn well when they claimed that they were ending "combat operations" and bringing the combat forces home that it was only going to affect a small fraction of the troops in Iraq.
