Quite why the Associated Press need this line in their wire report [sadly it’s changed now] about the drawdown of US troops in Iraq, is a mystery to me:

The U.S. originally thought Iraq would be peaceful soon after the 2003 invasion — meaning a short occupation and the relatively quick emergence of a viable government. But that didn’t happen.

REALLY?
