Yesterday, President Obama announced the ending of the war in Iraq which was started 10 years ago. He says that all American troops will be out of the country of Iraq by the end of 2011, just in time for the holidays. President Obama says that the transition between power is still continuing in Afghanistan as well and expects to have half the amount of American troops there by the end of the year. The Iraq war has been the longest war in American history.
