Notes From the Levant: Last of the Combat Troops Leaving Iraq? – Only in your Dreams

If you imagine that the U.S. invasion of Iraq is coming to an end, read the above article. By the way, the author calls the number of U.S. mercenary troops (i.e., armed soldiers employed by the U.S. government but not wearing U.S. military uniforms and NOT under the oversight of Congress) in Iraq as “unknowable.” He’s pretty much right, since the Pentagon tries to prevent the number from being known, but the last quoted figure I have seen is “100,000” – one of the world’s more impressive armies.
