US military forces abandoned the largest of their remaining bases in Iraq today, a former Saddam-era palace, bringing the total number of bases the US has inside Iraq down to only 20, from a former high of over 500.
The US appears to have taken virtually everything of even marginal value out of the palace on their way out, and reports say that the troops even took Saddam’s toilet with them, which will wind up in some US museum, officials say.
The US still has about 39,000 troops in Iraq, which under the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) it is obliged to remove by the end of next month. US officials insist they will comply.
Reports are that the US is planning to replace its direct occupation both with an army of State Department contractors inside Iraq and a massive deployment of combat troops in Kuwait. The Kuwaiti government denied the report, however, saying they didn’t expect a long-term buildup in their nation after the troops leave Iraq.

Americans are biggest thief in the world to ocuppy and then take every thing to america and if they after destroying Irak even saddams toilet is nothing new.
That is not right, it's called looting even if it's done by big Uncle Sam it is still looting!!! Why do the white men always think they can go anywhere and take possessing of people and things as they wish, out of respect of the locals, their culture, their beliefs and treasures. Is it because they feel or know their culture is empty or they lack creativity or they feel so minute that they need to take from others? Will never understand them, but one day what comes around, goes around – they will be themselves enslaved, and dominated – they are lazy, corrupt and bunch of fake beings.
Naw. It's just because they are greedy psychopaths.
They came, they saw, they looted the toilet.

Oh, yeah. And as they were leaving, they were chanting "we'll be baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!"
