    Last Convoy of American Troops Leaves Iraq, Marking an End to the War

    The last American military convoy crossed over the border from Iraq into Kuwait on Sunday.

    BAGHDAD — The last convoy of American troops to leave Iraq drove into Kuwait on Sunday morning, marking the end of the nearly nine-year war.

    The convoy’s departure, which included about 110 vehicles and 500 soldiers, came three days after the American military folded its flag in a muted ceremony here to celebrate the end of its mission.
    In darkness, the convoy snaked out of Contingency Operating Base Adder, near the southern city of Nasiriyah, around 2:30 a.m., and headed toward the border. The departure appeared to be the final moment of a drawn-out withdrawal that included weeks of ceremonies in Baghdad and around Iraq, and included visits by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta, as well as a trip to Washington by Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki of Iraq.
    As dawn approached on Sunday morning, the last trucks began to cross over the border into Kuwait at an outpost lit by floodlights and secured by barbed wire.

    Wow! Scary.

    I say this because, I wonder what is going to happen now that all of the troops have left and don't believe that they are just going to come back here to America and not be used in other aggressive methods. I wonder if they will now be sent out to other places like Africa, or Libya in Africa, or Kenya in Africa, or India or elsewhere. Or, I wonder what our government is going to do with them if they keep them and employ them to do things here in America. I wonder about this because of past histories in which governments turned against certain people within their own governmental realms and used militants to turn against their own citizens, a process of which tears down civilization from the inside out. I believe that many of these military men and women joined the military just out of high school because they felt that it was the best option to make a living, so now, how will they be regarded as fara as placing them in the work force if they choose to get out of the military?

    anyway, thanks for posting.

    Those are
    serious questions, and appropriate for the times we are about to enter.

    According to Marjorie Cohn the real reason why the troops left now is due to the Wikileaks expose of atrocities that caused the Iraqi gov to say that if soldiers stayed they would not have immunity from being prosecuted for war crimes.

    Battles are now in Afghanistan, Somalia, Kenya, Pakistan, according to Wayne Masden bases are being built in South America, and war plans are made for Syria and Iran

    not to defend the nation or fight for peace or democracy or any of the other propaganda they shovel at us, but because war is profitable, and it is easy to get third world grassroots people to act violently when they feel their economy is at stake.

    "The International"
    "Why would banks be interested in arms deals? the profit from sales?"
    "No you don't understand, banks are interested in the business of debt"
    "They are interested in the Debt that conficts, create"
