actualhuman: EighthDay: successfully exiting Iraq,Agreed with the rest of your post, but let's be honest: we're stil in Iraq. We're just there with expensive ass 'contractors' instead of military personel.
HeartBurnKid: actualhuman: EighthDay: successfully exiting Iraq,Agreed with the rest of your post, but let's be honest: we're stil in Iraq. We're just there with expensive ass 'contractors' instead of military personel.Decided to do some checking on this, and what I came up with is that we have 5000 security contractors in Iraq. Not only is that drastically lower than the number of contractors we had there when we did have troops there as well, but they're primarily charged with protecting the US embassy, not with any other kind of operations. It's still a bit troubling (I'd honestly rather those be US troops, though I'm sure diplomatic concerns with Iraq played a role there), but it's not quite what you're talking about, implying we just replaced our troops there with contractors.
