There’s plenty of concern about what the future will bring for Iraq, but after nine years of occupation there is also an overwhelming sense of relief as the last of the US occupation forces finally leave the country. With a death toll conservatively in the several hundreds of thousands and a crumbling infrastructure, the situation is grim, and questions about the Maliki government’s plans for the future could make it even moreso. Still and all, the exit appears to enjoy broad support.
