Today marks the "official" end of the US-Iraq II war. I applaud the President for following through on his campaign promise to get us out of Iraq. Now, let's see what this effort accomplished:
1. Nearly 4500 US servicemen killed. Estimates of Iraqi casualties vary.
2. An Iraqi government split by religious affiliation.
3. A proto-nuclear state in Iran with ballistic missiles ready to defy the world on proliferation.
4. A pan-Arab revolution spreading through the Middle East.
I think we need to get our military forces out of an overexposed position. I hope an expedited withdrawal from Afghanistan is next. In the meantime: to all those who served; THANK YOU!!!
