The Iraq war continues

The war goes on:  "Even with the Iraq exit in sight, the U.S. military is unlikely to wash its hands of the problems it will leave behind after nearly nine years of fighting. Wars don't end that neatly, and it is yet to be seen whether U.S. troops take on new missions in Iraq in 2012 to keep the country on track.  President Obama is ending the U.S. role in the Iraq war, but that does not necessarily mean the war itself is ending."
