A Draw-Down?
No—A Build-Up!

Anybody listening to the government or the media’s loud announcements last week would come away believing that the U.S. is pulling its troops out of Iraq–and just cooling its heels in Afghanistan.

In fact, not one U.S. soldier was pulled out of Iraq. They simply were moved off the streets and onto bases just outside the cities, ready to go back in at any time.

As for Afghanistan, the U.S. is preparing to send in 30,000 MORE troops. But to find that out, you had to dig DEEP into news stories. The wars are getting BIGGER, not smaller.

Need we be reminded–once again–that politicians pushing a war LIE?
