I think it's beyond surreal that the actor who's able to finally force an end to the Iraq war and occupation would be Iraq itself. We still can't find enough politicians in this country with enough spine to end this damned war. America is far too infantalized, with its notions of ego and pride at stake. It doesn't help that the war has been completely censored by US news media. Reading the daily tallies by Juan Cole is always a shock to my system.
End this damned war. Enough of this corrupt, bankrupt Empire.
