    ....moving out of Iraq.

    I didn't even believe we were gone from Iraq until I saw the "last US bridage leaving Iraq" on MSNBC last night. So we're finally gone.

    Hopefully fewer people will be dieing in the world now for no good reason.

    Hard to argue against this.

    Hardly. That's only combat troops. 50,000 advisory (which could mean anything from desk jobs to black ops missions) troops will remain until at least 2011. Not to mention hundreds of thousands of "defense contractors" (Mercenaries) and US government money going to pay off militias so they won't fight.

    Gavik is correct, there is still 6,000 Estonian troops in Iraq and I am sure other countries as well. Must be election times for the USA? lol

    In my opinion, I'd say that we're actually worse off now, having all of our combat forces out of there, cause we still have 50,000 troops over there doing random jobs. Just because our combat forces are finally gone, that doesn't mean, by any stretch of the means, that we're actually out of Iraq.

    Yeah, I just read something recently about Obama sending over more civilian contractors to take the place of soldiers.

    All I can really think about all of this is "at least we're making some kind of progress." We're probably going to have a military presence in Iraq like we have bases in Germany or South Korea.
