Here is a link to a very good radio interview with James Rawles, author of "Patriots", that should be of interest to every member of our online community:
This is an awesome read and what drove me to getting prepared. In addition to it being a riveting fictional tale, it is also a training manual with lots of information. I learned a lot.
The last American troops are to be out of Iraq by Dec. 31. Thousands of others are still in Afghanistan.

The withdrawal will cap a war in which nearly 4,500 Americans were killed, roughly 32,000 were wounded, hundreds of billions of dollars were spent and the American political debate was consumed until economic woes brought attention back home.

Obama had already said weeks ago that he was pulling all troops by year's end, leaving his appearance with al-Maliki to focus instead on what's next — a relationship both leaders described as rich in shared interests, from education to oil, politics to security.nike heelsnike high heelsjordan heelsjordan high heelsair jordan heelsair jordan high heelsjordans heelsdunk heelsnike dunk heelsnike heels for womenjordan heels for womencheap nike heelscheap jordan heelsnike heelsjordan high heelsjordan heelsdiscount nike heelsnike heelsnike dunk heelsdunk heelswww.nikeheels2sale.com
To the Iraqi people, who still face massive challenges in rebuilding a society ripped apart by nearly nine years of war, Obama said: "You will not stand alone."

The United States, in fact, needs the help of Iraq in dealing with the volatile Middle East and two of neighbors in particular, Iran and Syria. In getting out of Iraq, Obama emphasized that "our strong presence in the Middle East endures" and the United States won't soften in its defense of its interests.ken griffey shoesken griffey jr shoesgriffey shoesken griffey sneakersking griffey shoesgriffey sneakersgriffeys shoesgriffeysgriffeys sneakersking griffey sneakersnike griffeys shoesgriffey shoes salegriffey shoes onlinegriffeys onlinewomen griffey shoeswomen ken griffey shoesken griffey shoesnike air more uptemponike uptempoair more uptempoair uptemponike air griffey max onecheap nike griffey shoeswww.kengriffeysneakers4sale.com
In the midst of a re-election run, Obama is using the war's end to both honor the military's sacrifice and to remind the nation the unpopular war is ending on his watch. He is to deliver his war-is-over message in TV interviews on Tuesday and then again on Wednesday in remarks to troops at Fort Bragg, N.C.nike heelsnike high heelsdunk heelsnike dunk heelsjordan heelsnike jordans heelsnike heels australianike high heels australianike dunk heels asutraliadunk heels australianike heels for womennike dunk heels for womennike australia onlinecheap nike heelsnike heels onlinenike australiajordan heelsjordan high heelsair jordan high heelsnike dunk heelsdunk heelsdunk high heelsnike heelsnike high heelshigh heels nikeswww.inikeheels.com
In a 2002 speech during the months before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq began, when Obama was a U.S. senator from Illinois, he that "What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war."nike heelsnike heels for womennike high heelsdunk sb heelsnike heels uknike dunk heelsdunk heelsjordan high heelsnike dunk heelsnike for womencheap nike heelsjordan high heelsjordan heelsair jordan high heelsair jordan heelsnike heelsnike high heelsdunk sb heelsdunk heelsnike dunk heelswww.nikesheeluk.com
"I think history will judge the original decision to go into Iraq," Obama said. What's clear, he added, is that because of the huge sacrifices by American soldiers and civilians and the courage of the Iraqi people, "we have now achieved an Iraq that is self-governing, that is inclusive and that has enormous potential."cheap griffey shoescheap ken griffey shoescheap griffeysken griffey shoesken griffey sneakersgriffey sneakersgriffeys shoesgriffeysnew griffeysken griffey jr shoesnike griffeys shoesgriffey shoes salegriffeys onlinenew griffey shoesken griffe shoes 2011griffeys 2011nike air griffey max 2nike air griffey max gh 2nike air more uptemponike uptempoair more uptemponike uptemposnike air griffey maxnike air griffey max 1women griffey shoesken griffey shoes for womenwww.igriffeyshoes.com
Said al-Maliki: "Anyone who observes the nature of the relationship between the two countries will say that the relationship will not end with the departure of the last American soldier."nike heels for womennike high heelsdunk heelsnike dunk heelsjordan heelsjordan high heelsair jordan heelsair jordan high heelsjordans heelsjordan bootsnike jordan heelsjordan heels for womenjordans heelsair jordan heels for womenjordan heelsjordan high heelsnike heelsnike high heelswww.jordansheelssale.com
Yet significant questions remain over the details of the security relationship between the U.S. and Iraq once all Americans troops are withdrawn. Iraqi leaders have said they want U.S. military training assistance for their security forces but have been unable to agree on what type of help they'd like or what protections they would be willing to give American trainers.nike heelsnike heels for womennike high heelsjordan heelsnike heels uknike dunk heelsdunk heelsnike high heels uknike dunk heelsair jordan high heelsjordan high heelscheap nike heelsnike heelsnike high heelsnike heels for womenbuy nike heelsair jordan high heelsjordan heelscheap jordan heelsdunk sb heelsnike dunk heelsdunk high heelswww.jordanhighheels2sale.com
At times, Obama's language had the echoes of President George W. Bush, particularly in the potential for Iraq to help transform its part of the world. "Our goal is simply to make sure that Iraq succeeds, because we think a successful, democratic Iraq can be a model for the entire region," Obama said.
