ON AUGUST 31, THE US MILITARY FORMALLY ENDED its combat operations in Iraq, and its 50,000 remaining troops will assume a training and advisory role for the Iraqi army.

While the US presence will remain formidable for the time being and include counter-insurgency activities, President Barack Obama has pledged to withdraw all US forces by the end of 2011 (although a considerable civilian and security contractor presence will undoubtedly remain).
