56. Funny thing that you would post this today...
I was thinking about this same thing today. I was remembering the last helicopters pulling out, and how the people were clamoring to get over the fence of the U.S. Embassy there to escape. And I wondered if we would be seeing similar pictures when/if we ever pull out of Iraq....
