In case you were laboring under the misimpression ...

... that the US "won" in Iraq, Voice of America explains that that's not the case:

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has arrived in Iraq where he is expected to hold talks with officials on the country's election deadlock.

Biden arrived in Baghdad Saturday on a visit that had not been previously announced by the White House.

More than seven years since "mission accomplished!"

More than three years since the 2nd Brigade of the US Army's 3rd Infantry Division arrived in Iraq to complete the "surge" rollout.

And yet to this very day, the President and Vice-President of the United States still have to sneak into Iraq like Mexicans looking for landscaping jobs in Texas, then spend most or all of their time in the country cowering behind the blast walls and barbed wire of the "Green Zone."

Yeah, that's "victory" all right. Uh huh.
