So, I guess we’re leaving then…
12/25/05 ” Ninemsn” — — The top US military commander admitted Sunday that Iraqis wanted US and other foreign troops to leave the country “as soon as possible,” and said US troop levels in Iraq were now being re-assessed on a monthly basis.
The admission by Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Marine General Peter Pace followed a decision by the Pentagon to reduce the current level of 160,000 soldiers in Iraq by two army brigades, which amounts to about 7,000 soldiers.
Well, lets see if King George sticks to his word and “leaves if asked”.
Ha. I’m a kidder.
