The Occupation ISN'T Over

No matter what AP says:
The attack came only days after the U.S. coalition authorities handed over sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government. Despite the end of the occupation, about 160,000 foreign troops -- most of them Americans -- remain in Iraq to provide security and train Iraq's new security services.
(emphasis added)

I could hold a secret ceremony at 3 in the morning declaring my cats to be king and queen of the universe, and it would have more meaning than Paul Bremer giving Allawi some pretty papers. The end of the occupation will come when there are about ZERO foreign troops in Iraq, and not before.
