Is the war in Iraq over?

Earlier Michael Yon declared that the war in Iraq is over.  Now, Michael Totten asks the question. Totten is evidently more wary of being a hostage to fortune, but here’s his bottom line:

What most of us still think of as “war” in Iraq is, at this point, a rough and unfinished peacekeeping mission. Whether it is officially over or not, it has certainly been downgraded to something else, and it’s about time more analysts and observers are willing to say so.

Good news, but no triumphalism this time, please, particularly with how things are going in Afghanistan.
