Obama has finally announced the end of United States military occupation of Iraq:
All US troops will be pulled out of Iraq by the end of the year, President Barack Obama has announced.
He ordered a complete withdrawal from the country, nearly nine years after the invasion under President George W Bush.
This would be far better news if it didn’t likely mean our troops will be replaced by private contractors from the likes of
Blackwater Xe. I’m actually willing to bet money that we’re going to increase the number of mercenaries in the region which means we’ll still be dumping untold trillions into this ill-fated war.
