    Official: U.S. pulling out all troops from Iraq

    Official: U.S. pulling out all troops from Iraq
    By the CNN Wire Staff
    updated 12:26 PM EST, Fri October 21, 2011

    (CNN)
    -- The United States will withdraw almost all its troops from Iraq by the end of the year, as a current agreement with Iraq dictates, a U.S. official told CNN Friday. O
    nly about 150 troops, a negligible force, will remain to assist in arms sales. The United States had expected that some of the roughly 40,000 Americans in Iraq would remain there to aid in training and security.

    But the two nations were unable to reach a deal on a key issue regarding legal immunity for U.S. troops, a senior U.S. military official with direct knowledge of the discussions told CNN this month.
    The United States wanted to retain immunity but the Iraqis refused to agree to that, opening up the prospect of Americans being tried in Iraqi courts and subjected to Iraqi punishment.

    In a short speech delivered minutes ago, President Obama said our remaining forces in Iraq will be home for the coming holidays

    I'll believe it when I see it. And also, what about the rest of the ME...can we pull our troops out of there too?

    Dislike.

    I want us to keep several thousand troops in Iraq or next door in Kuwait, incase we are needed to take on Al Qaeda or other trouble-makers.

    Who is that?
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Obama also said that the incremental draw-down of US forces from Afghanistan will continue.

    Can we stop bombing all those various places and countries too? Stop helping with revolutions and such? Maybe save some money.

    This is good news, but we will still be in Afghanistan and probably have some sort of contracter there.

    I didn't script the story here, I just relayed the message.
