KHABARI CROSSING, Kuwait (AP) – The last U.S. soldiers rolled out of Iraq across the border into neighboring Kuwait at daybreak Sunday, whooping, fist bumping and hugging each other in a burst of joy and relief. Their convoy’s exit marked the end of a bitterly divisive war that raged for nearly nine years and left Iraq shattered, with troubling questions lingering over whether the Arab nation will remain a steadfast U.S. ally.
NOTE: Special thanks to all of our Armed Forces service personnel, for their defense of the US, their sacrifices of time spent being away from their families, for conducting themselves with honor and dignity under stressful conditions, and for paying the ultimate price in terms of lives lost and personal injuries. You all are heroes. The Tundra Tabloids has opinions on the outcome, but this is not the time to address them.
