Goodbye, Iraq

I think we can safely say the U.S. involvement in the Iraq War is over.

Fox News is reporting that the Obama administration plans to withdraw all but about 3,000 of the more than 40,000 U.S. troops currently in Iraq, a move that is consistent with President Barack Obama’s repeated promises to end the war in Iraq. Sources told Fox that the number of troops begrudgingly approved by the military — 10,000 troops — would be cut even further, likely allowing the U.S. to carry out mostly training missions.

The blowback, of course, will last for decades and whichever Democratic president is in office will be blamed for it.
