In late October of 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama confirmed that all U.S. forces will leave Iraq by the end of the year. Already in early November convoys of American military equipment headed to Kuwait. Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said that the Americans had already left the 485 military bases, and transfer to Iraqi authorities left them still only 20 bases. In Iraq, there is still about 40 thousand. American soldiers. Since the invasion of 2003 killed them there more than 4.4 thousand. To this statement I chose a few dozen photographs from the years 2003-2011, illustrating the presence of U.S. troops in Iraq. Deliberately omitted from these photographs, which are regarded as the flagship (mistreatment of prisoners, detention of Saddam Hussein, etc..), Focusing on lesser-known photographs, but this does not diminish their value. I do not exclude that in the future I will return to this theme yet to 990px.
