  1. "non combat role"? is it just me or does this phrase sound familiar? about 40 years ago familiar. we're still dicking around vietnam and korea. and all those troops that got pulled out of iraq just got driven down the road to afghanistan.
  2. Ah, yes. An end to Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the start to Operation New Dawn, named after Obama's two favorite novels, New Moon and Breaking Dawn.

    And yes, for some reason they've changed the name of the operation to New Dawn. I couldn't make up a worse name if I tried.
