America is withdrawing it’s combat troops?
The United States of America has just become to withdraw it’s combat troops.
By the end of the month they will have no more combat troops and the combat mission will be declared over.
That means no more American’s fighting in Iraq, right? Wrong!
The United States of America will leave 50,000 soldiers to train and advise the Iraqi army. They will be armed and (not so surprisingly) defend themselves if attacked and (actually surprising) accompany the Iraqi army during assaults and partake in special ops combat missions at the request of the Iraqi army.
So how is it that leaving 50,000 soldiers to continue fighting under the command of the Iraqi forces ending the American combat mission?
