On 10 December, the Associated Press published a report that the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq, formed to seek out and destroy Islamic State fighters, had formally shifted its mission from combat to one of providing training, assistance and advice to Iraqi forces.
The report notes that the Biden administration had declared in July that the U.S. combat mission in Iraq would be ended by 31 December, and this announcement makes good on that promise. It also notes that some 2,500 U.S. troops remain in Iraq.
TRENDPOST: So, apparently the troops will stay, but they’ll now be in an advisory role rather than a combat role. The number of U.S. troops in Iraq was reduced to around 2,500 in 2020; see “U.S. REDUCING TROOPS IN IRAQ” (9 Sep 2020).
While the official description of the U.S. role in Iraq has changed from “combat” to “advisory,” other words describing U.S. involvement there remain unchanged; those would be words like “murky,” “ill-advised” or “futile.” 
For more (and rather extensive) reading on the subject, and to see how Trends Journal‘s Gerald Celente correctly assessed and foresaw where U.S. involvement in Iraq was headed, see:

Also see Philip Giraldi’s essay for Trends Journal, “THE EVIL THAT MEN DO LIVES AFTER THEM” (24 Aug 2021).
TRENDPOST: What is totally absent in the mainstream media coverage of the Iraq War is the trillions spent to wage it, the millions of Iraqi’s that were slaughtered, their country bombed to destruction, the U.S. troops that were killed, wounded… and how many committing suicide from a war based on the lie that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass-destruction. 
And instead of charging George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and others for war crimes—for lying the nation into war—instead they are celebrated and elevated by the Presstitutes and the Washington crime syndicate.  Indeed, they promote Bush’s childish art work and Cheney’s daughter is a Washington and mainstream media celebrity.
