For the first time in nine years, there are no Americans fighting in Iraq.
As of the 18th of December, 2011, all American troops have been pulled out of Iraq, ending the Iraq War which dragged on for 8 years and 273 days. 4,487 American soldiers gave their life for this war, another 32,226 wounded.
Oh, and thousands of security contractors (i.e., mercenary soldiers) remain in Iraq, mostly in defense of the world’s largest embassy.
