That's great news

Anbar is the 11th of Iraq's 18 provinces to revert to local security control, but is the first Sunni-dominated one.

now that approx 61% of Iraq is under local security control, 61 % of the troops will be leaving Iraq and heading for Afghanistan.

That must be the new math...

I guess we must react in a knee-jerk fashion. NOTHING is more important than running away. Heaven forfend there should be any success over there.

Percentages?...new math?

11/18*100=61.1%

Go to the back of the class?

So how many coalition troops have left Iraq

to go fight in Afghanistan?

I think I heard the "Ramrods" the 22 (approx 800)have arrived.

Take into consideration Iraq has "taken control" of 11 provinces.

When Iraq has total control perhaps another 400 American troops will be freed up.

I mean alleged good news.

Now it's taken control

Iraq has taken control, no reduction in American forces, figure that one out.

The closer the election gets...the more Iraq will "take control"

I suppose this is a like too?

Everything is a lie to some people. Especially the truth.

Don't worry. There's still a chance of failure if the right ONE is elected.

Things are going extremely well. We can tell that

because the subject has dropped out of the news. I'm sure certain parties are salivating at declaring victory after the election is over. The claim may well be that what didn't work is responsible for the victory.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
