A Combat Brigade Leaves; U.S. War of Terror Against Iraq Continues

 
A Combat Brigade Leaves; U.S. War of Terror Against Iraq Continues Thursday, 19 August 2010© On August 19th the last "combat" brigade left Iraq. This took place more than seven years after the original U.S. imperialist invasion of the country by the Bush regime. U.S. propagandists are trumpeting this withdrawal and many Americans believe the war there is all but over. But the reality is that the U.S. occupation and war of terror against the people of Iraq continues. According to the official U.S. Department of Defense website, the departure of the last “combat” brigade “leaves 56,000 U.S. service members in Iraq.” Those numbers do not count the thousands of employees of the largest U.S. embassy in the world or the tens of thousands of U.S. contractors still there. They also do not count the tens of thousands of troops in the U.S. directed puppet army being trained and advised by the U.S. imperialists.
