 Bet I will. Thanks to our friends out at Joplin Missouri for getting things started today, during next ten minutes we’re gonna talk about Parliamentary politics and technology challenge, we’re starting with Europe’s economy. It’s in the middle of crisis, because several countries in the European Union have massive debts. This problem affects a lot more nations than just the one that’s struggling with money. 17 countries all use the same currency, the euro. If any of them take a big hit economically all of them could be affected1, that’s why European leaders are meeting in Belgium today and in tomorrow, they’re working on new financial rules that will force countries manage their budgets better. U.S. Treasury2 Secretary Timothy Geithner is there too, he said the U.S. trusts Europe’s ability to resolve the debt crisis. But some analysts3 say the fact that Secretary Geithner is there shows how concerned the U.S. is about what’s happening in Europe, because if the crisis doesn’t get resolved it could get more problems for America’s economy as well. 

Next up, some people are asking new parliamentary election in Russia. That’s because they worried the ones that were held this past Sunday were unfair. Protesters had hit the streets speak out about this. Several hundred people have been arrested, the protesters are angry about the election results and a lot of their anger is directed at the man at the right of your screen here, that’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, he was president of Russia for eight years, and he’s the leader of the political party that has the majority in Russia’s Parliament. In Sunday’s vote that party won fewer seats than it used to have, but it still won enough to control Parliament, Putin has promised to make changes in the government.
See if you can ID me? I’m an island nation that’s home to around eleven million people. I’m the one of the only Communist countries in the world. I’m located about hundred miles away from the United States and my capital is Havana. I’m Cuba, the U.S. has headman embargo4 in placed against the country for decades.
That embargo restricts Americans or U.S. companies from doing business with Cuba, or traveling to the island nation. The goal of embargo is to enforce the Communist government to move toward democracy, earlier in this year President Obama loosen some of those traveler’s restrictions5 to try to help the Cuban people. Yesterday the first // flight took off from Atlanta to Havana. The New policies allow purposeful travel to Cuba that includes people who have close relatives in Cuba, the rules also applied6 to anyone who works in the medical or agriculture industries or who is traveling for educational or religious activities.  
Switching from people who are traveling out of the United States to people who are returning and this is a significant journey home. 170 members of the U.S. military landed in Washington State yesterday, they’re coming back from serving in Iraq. And the reason why this is a big deal is because it was the last large group of soldiers who are coming home from that country. 
We’ve reported on how the U.S. is on schedule to pull nearly all of its troops out out of Iraq by the end of this year, but not all of its troops are going home. M walks us through some the details as America’s military involvement in Iraq withers7 down.  
Because it all began the firing, anyway began in 2003 that’s when the first troop went across the border, and it’s nearly nine years later. These guys are finally coming home, and Iraqis get its country back. 
The Americans will hand over the keys so to speak to the Iraqis. December fifteenth is going to be the big one for the United States, there’s gonna be a ceremony at the massive U.S. embassies there. Now from December 1990 that’s when you’re gonna see the last convoy8 when the last soldier symbolically9 crosses the border into Kuwait.
There’re gonna be a lot of U.S.troops stay in Kuwait, there’s 23,000 base there, and having base there for years now, some U.S. forces are going to stay as trainers that’s not gonna be a lot of people, you’re talking about maybe a couple of hundred people, and you also let’s remember got U.S. forces in other parts of the region, //, //, the united Arab // this // the U.S. having increase worship presents in the region too. So they wanna keep put that footprint there in the Middle East. 
Of course when the U.S. troops go, the bases become Iraqi property. And the // around the bases although just dismantle10 them entirely11, you know you’re talking about a huge number of bases during this war, at the height of the war there was more than 500 U.S. bases around the country. By round towards the end of 2010 I think that number dropped to less than a hundred, right now there’s about a dozen. 
At the end of the day, there’s gonna be a lot of relieve, people that it’s //, both the United States and Iraq and all other states who were taken apart in this war, I think also there’ll also be a lot of  damage that’s going to endure forever.
