Finally, the combat troops are leaving Iraq, and remaining behind are 50,000 non-combative troops to help continue training and support the Iraqi Administration in power.
My opinion – it was all done purely for politics and a waste of lives on all sides. I was against us going into Iraq from day 1, I always said there were no WMDs, and Saddam could not possibly move all they said he had on a daily basis to thwart the investigative noses of UN inspectors.
I’m glad we are out, I hope everyone learned war does not pay, and I dearly hope we never go into another one, especially when there is no solid proof of wrong-doing.
I’m not sure what the real reason for going there, but it wasn’t what they said it was.
On another thought, RIP Norma. May you now get the peace you need.
