I can't believe that anyone would be suprised about this. The Iranian backed Shiite militias have been pacified for quite a while. Maybe they are just waiting, I don't know. Al Qaeda has no real support to speak of. Occasionally you get a suicide bombing from wherever but that is about it. It is my understanding that roadside bombs are still a concern. The war has been over for about a year.
Not only that but we won. You won't see or hear any of that in the media though because you had so many democrats, many of them still in office, who had declared that we had lost and didn't want to fund the war or offer reinforcements. Remember "The Surge"? That's what won the war. Remember all the funding that the Democrats didn't want to provide? That was necessary. They were wrong, wrong, wrong. Bush was wrong in starting the war, they were wrong at virtually every decision making point after that. In my opinion there are elected officials who caused casualties in this war with their publicity seeking nonsense. That's outrageous to me. The public has seemed to have forgotten about that.
You can bet that when election time comes around you will see Obama tooting his horn about how he ended this war. Just remember that it is bullshit.
