One war is over – finally!

President Obama announces full withdrawal of troops from Iraq ending a nine year war.

This war, which I think most people would agree was not necessary, came at an enormous cost: 4482 lives, more than 30,000 wounded and a trillion dollars.

Truth is the US wanted to keep combat troops in Iraq but the Iraqis didn’t want it. Let’s leave them to it.

Still Obama is right: the last US soldier can cross the border with his/her head held high.

But, meanwhile, the war that was justified – Afghanistan – continues.
