NotesNews: "There was no triumphalism and certainly no shock or awe. The end of the war in Iraq was subdued and simple: a small band playing as the US forces flag was furled with 200 troops watching quietly. In a makeshift parade ground in a corner of Baghdad airport, time was called on the war just after 1pm yesterday, eight years, eight months and 26 days after its more dramatic opening in March 2003. Nearby a plane was waiting to take home the US high command. And in southern Iraq, the 4,000 US troops who remain were streaming towards Kuwait. .... " Martin Chulov, The Guardian
