The lesson from the Iraq war: Yes We Can

We look at the final withdrawal from Iraq, and how that's gone down with the American press. We're also talking about rumours in the British papers that David Cameron is deliberately trying to sabotage an agreement between the other 26 EU member states.

The Huffington Post says the American left should celebrate a victory in creating the public pressure that ended the war in Iraq; while the New York Times says the reception to the pullout is very mixed in Iraq itself.

The same paper has had an amazingly lucky break; one of its journalists found 400 pages of classified documents in a Baghdad bin, full of witness testimony from American marines about a notorious 2005 massacre.

The Guardian reports David Cameron is lobbying other eurozone leaders to try to sabotage the treaty he refused to sign last week.

And in Brazil, O Globo reports on a new approach to gun control - giving people free World Cup tickets if they hand in a firearm.
