Rather quiet in Iraq

It is rather amazing that Iraq is as calm as it is, almost a relative sense of normalcy. Even before President Obama has gotten a chance to lift a finger, Iraq is suddenly no longer a top news issue. Sure, we still have many thousands of troops there, but there seems to be a sense that a gradual drawdown will actually be feasible without any dramatic efforts from our new commander in chief. The biggest issue may simple be how to actually base and structure the more limited numbers of troops that will remain after we have officially "withdrawn" 16 or 18 months from now.
