I guess the Iraq War ended.

Nice shell game. Wonder what the catch on ending the Afghan war will be. Obama was able to create the opening by sliding most of the troops to Afghanistan, really just shifting the effort to a country at least arguably more relevant, if not more fruitful. Not a bad move entirely if he does get out next year, but most people know the U.S. never leaves a country, it just scales down. I just feel a bit skeptical that we’ll ever really get all the way out and leave the Middle East alone for five minutes.
