Gone before Christmas: The U.S. military’s move out of Iraq the biggest since WWII
At the peak of the United States war in Iraq, the U.S. military had more than 170,000 troops, 500 bases replete with tents and toilets, kitchens and motor pools, and an airline that flew hundreds of times a day across the country.
Soldiers, trucks and weaponry are streaming out of Iraq every day. From that peak of 170,000 troops, about 18,000 remain this week, with hundreds leaving daily. Virtually all will be gone before Christmas.
While you were gone the US has been weakened from within. We need you here!
If you are able, in any way, keep up the good fight
From one Mom, A Heartfelt Thank You
Now re-check info about all the private security forces still paid to be there, and realise that the withdrawal is only partial and token.
