Don’t believe it for a moment. Our troops are there to stay in some form. This is Obamaganda (Obama Propaganda).

For sure, he wants you to believe that he has fulfilled a campaign promise. Bah! Humbug!

The exit of US troops leaves behind a fragile democracy in Iraq

The last convoy of US troops to leave Iraq has entered Kuwait, nearly nine years after the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.

The final column of about 100 armoured vehicles carrying 500 soldiers crossed the southern Iraqi desert overnight.

At the peak of the operation there were 170,000 US troops and more than 500 bases in Iraq.

Nearly 4,500 US soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraqis have died since the US-led campaign began in 2003.

The operation has cost Washington nearly $1 trillion (£643bn).
