小编摘要:美国军队几乎已经完成了为从伊拉克撤军所有基地和设备进行“打包”的这份繁重工作。在伊拉克度过了将近9年的时光后,成千上万的美国军队已经离开了这个国家,而部分人则要呆到 12月31日。

美国军队关闭基地“打包”设备撤出伊拉克 

The U.S. military has almost completed the huge job of packing up all of its bases and equipment and moving out of Iraq.

After almost nine years in Iraq, thousands of U.S. troops have already left the country, and the ones remaining will be gone by December 31.

Camp Adder, near the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah, is the last staging post for trucks and soldiers before they arrive in neighboring Kuwait.

"For all the convoys that come through here, the convoy commanders come in and check in with us, we verify their documentation, and if there is anything wrong with the documentation, we correct it on the spot," said Captain David Moses, one of the officers coordinating the final drawdown.

Also leaving are hundreds of non-military personnel who worked on the military bases, including those from Pakistan, India and Nepal.

There used to be 12,000 U.S. soldiers here, creating constant traffic on these now-empty streets.

The U.S. military says it is leaving behind some $200 million worth of equipment, including hundreds of beat up carsand pickup trucks. Most of what is being left in Iraq would cost too much to ship out.

Lt. Col. Charles Krumwiede, of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, Ist Cavalry Division, says the drawdown has gone well.

"I feel we are honoring that sacrifice by the way we are professionally pulling out of this country," said Krumwiede.

The Iraqi Air Force has already taken over what used to be a large American base. It is now known as the Imam Ali Airfield.

But most of what is left is dust and concrete, reminders of a long U.S. military presence.

美国军队几乎已经完成了为从伊拉克撤军所有基地和设备进行“打包”的这份繁重工作。

在伊拉克度过了将近9年的时光后,成千上万的美国军队已经离开了这个国家,而部分人则要呆到 12月31日。

在伊拉克南部城市纳西里耶附近的Adder营地是在卡车和士兵到达科威特前最后的驻留点。

队长大卫·摩西是协调最终撤离的军官之一,他说道:“所有的护送车队都要经过这里,指挥官会进行检查,我们验证他们的文件,如有任何错误,我们会当场进行改正。”

在军事基地工作的数以百计的非军事人员,包括那些来自巴基斯坦、印度和尼泊尔的人员也在进行撤离。

过去这里有12000名美国士兵充斥在这些街道上,而现在的街道已经空空如也。

美国军方表示,一些价值2亿美元的设备正在撤离当中,包括数以百计的老爷汽车和武装卡车。而大多数设备只能留在伊拉克,因为撤离的价格实在让人无法接受。

查尔斯·克鲁德中校隶属于第1骑兵师第3战斗团队,他表示撤离已经很完美。

鲁德中校说道:“我们应该向那些为我们能如此专业高效撤出这个国家所做出的牺牲致敬。”

伊拉克空军已接管过去的一个大型美国基地。它现在被称为伊玛阿里机场。

但是,大多数剩下的只是尘埃和混凝土,这些都提醒着人们曾经在这里的美国军队。
