    2000 British troops to begin Iraq withdrawal this spring

    According to this report, from today's Independent, Britain will begin withdrawing troops from Iraq this spring. Let's see all British troops out, soon:

    The pull-out plan would see an initial 500 British troops depart from southern Iraq by the end of May, a Whitehall source confirmed. By the end of the year, under a schedule revealed at a meeting of military commanders and diplomats last month, Britain intends to withdraw up to 2,000 soldiers - a quarter of its total force in Iraq. The US is understood to have approved the proposal in principle, as long as there are no significant upheavals in Iraq's political process and security condition.
    I don't care what the rogue regime in Washington have to say about the proposals. It is not up to the US to dictate when British troops are withdrawn from another country. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
