"In 18 days, the last of the remaining U.S. forces will have left Iraq. So far, no fanfare has heralded this significant event, which has been quiet and orderly -- nothing like the 'shock and awe' of the initial invasion in March 2003, or the furor and tumult that marked the nearly nine-year occupation afterward. After years of talking about what victory would look like (and downgrading that definition, conveniently, to accommodate evolving realities 'on the ground') it seems to matter little." (12/13/11)
