US troops have been called in to help Iraqi forces battle insurgents who attacked an army base in Baghdad, killing 12 people, officials say.
It marks the first such use of US troops since the end of US combat operations five days ago.
US forces remaining in Iraq can now only participate in operations at the request of Iraqi authorities.

You have to wonder what they have been doing over there for the past 9 years..
Our Australian troops were mainly involved with training the Iraqi soldiers.
Obviouslt they didn't learn very much..
How many Taliban are left and how well armed can they be??
Well, gee...it's like if you are alive, you probably are 'Taliban', as there are so many soldiers shooting at everything that moves. Kids, photographers, themselves. How would you like to live in war zone based on a fraud (911)? It's survival, not a political choice.

Taliban? In Iraq? I don't think so. Taliban is in Afghanistan / Pakistan (Waziristan).

Then one day, once they've completed an in-depth review of Iraqi capabilities they will launch a massive attack and effectively take over the government.
