Last Convoy of American Troops Leaves Iraq

About time !
I personally was never against the war in Iraq, I believe it was a great service to the Iraqi people, we took Saddam out of power and decimated Al Qaida every chance we could.
Will the people of Iraq understand what we have given them? Hell no.

Will the people of Iraq every pull their heads out of their Islamic Haze in order to live a normal life NOT under control by a Dictator or a terrorist group? Hell no!.

For the most part I think the Iraqi people want normalcy and freedom, but unfortunately for them their religion leads to murder and terrorism and an environment of fear that is inescapable due to ISLAM.

For our Troops I hope they can be home for Christmas, Safe and sound.

Good job and thank you to all of them.

The New York Times

The last convoy of American troops to leave Iraq drove into Kuwait on Sunday morning, marking the end of the nearly nine-year war.

The convoy’s departure, which included about 110 vehicles and 500 soldiers, came three days after the American military folded its flag in a muted ceremony here to celebrate the end of its mission.

In darkness, the convoy snaked out of Contingency Operating Base Adder, near the southern city of Nasiriyah, around 2:30 a.m., and headed toward the border. The departure appeared to be the final moment of a drawn-out withdrawal that included weeks of ceremonies in Baghdad and around Iraq, and included visits by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta, as well as a trip to Washington by Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki of Iraq.
