2176 days

US/UK troops have been in Iraq 2176 days. That is equal to the whole of World War II from Hitler's invasion of Poland to the capitulation of Japan. And it is not over yet. Obama says he'll take out combat troops in August 2010, but there will still be lots of non-combat troops, and the biggest American embassy in the world. And NATO's war in Afghanistan goes on. Also, it is now official that there is to be no change in Palestine either. Hillary heaped praise on the discredited leadership of the PLO, and said not a word about Hamas. And you can be sure that America will continue to shore up the regimes in Egypt, Arabia and the Gulf. Business as usual!
