I just read CBS news which informed me that today, Obama met with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and has agreed to to end the war and bring all our troops home by December 31st this year.
Brian Montopoli reports, “This is a season of homecomings,” Mr. Obama said Monday at the White House, flanked by al-Maliki. “Military families across America are being reunited for the holidays.”
To give you an idea of how many people are coming home the report said,
“According to Businessweek, the United States has 8,000 military personnel and 5,000 contractors remaining in Iraq, all of whom are set to depart. There were approximately 300,000 Americans in the country in 2007, nearly half of whom were contractors.”
So I guess the war is over… What do you think? please write a comment with your reflection on the war in Iraq and anything else you think.
