End of the Combat Mission in Iraq
I remember the build up and propaganda to go invade, which was to disarm Hussein who supposedly had WMD. Turns out he didn't.
I remember thinking we'd been hoodwinked the moment national news dubbed the invasion Operation Iraqi Freedom instead of something like Operation Disarm.
The whole thing depresses me.
Seven years later, Barack Obama has just announced an end to the combat mission in Iraq.
On another note, young American people are too fat to fight, according to Mission: Readiness, a non-profit group consisting of senior retired military officials.
