The troops are coming home!

Well, it seems as if the troops are coming home- well, most of them.

It was announced that the USA plans to drawn down troops in Iraq to 50 k by September 1st. Allot of families are glad to hear that.

Will this destabilise Iraq? Who knows? Reports from Iraq are mixed on the matter. Some want the USA to stay longer, others want them to get out- in both Iraq and American circles.

I think the worst of it is over. Saddam is gone. The real battle for terror and the middle east is in Afghanistan. While there are terrorist elements in Iraq, they have never taken hold as they have in the no-man's country as in Afghanistan.

President Obama's mission to end the engagement with Iraq is finally here.
