Sorry lunalava and wixxy, I don’t mean to drown out your posts, but news.com has just reported that Obama has announced a withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. They report that:
Mr Obama’s statement ended months of wrangling over whether the US would maintain a force in Iraq beyond 2011.
Mr Obama spoke of a promise kept, a new day for a self-reliant Iraq, and a focus on building up the economy of the United States instead of a land far away.
“I can report that as promised, the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of the year,” Mr Obama said.
“After nearly nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over.”
