The End of the Iraq War

Today marks the end of the seven year conflict in Iraq. When the war began in March 2003 it swiftly toppled the tyrannical dictatorship of Saddam Hussein then simmered for three years until the year of near-civil war. Today, after the success of the Surge and countless sacrifices by the US, Allied, and Iraqi militaries, Iraq is free. The last combat troops of our military have left via Kuwait:
"It's something I'm going to be proud of for the rest of my life — the fact that I came in on the initial push and now I'm leaving with the last of the combat units," [Spc. Luke Dill] said.

Thank goodness
This is certainly a proud moment and thankfully the war ended on our terms, not those of al Qaeda or the Ba'athists. Thanks must go out to our brave men and women who gave so much.

Well said!

Much applause, and even more gratitude, to all of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coasties who served and sacrificed. Thanks to you, the defeatists who insisted that victory was impossible stand revealed as the fools and liars we've always known they are.
