The main ally of US is looking at withdrawing from Iraq. Britain will be withdrawing 1,500 soilders from Iraq in several weeks. Tony Blair will announce on Wednesday a new timetable for the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq.
Blair will also tell the House of Commons during his regular weekly appearance before it that a total of about 3,000 British soldiers will have left southern Iraq by the end of 2007, if the security there is sufficient, the British Broadcasting Corp. and The Sun newspaper said, quoting government officials who weren’t further identified.
This does not look too good cos with the withdrawal, guess who is going to propose for a troop increase again???
I know that UN will not send in any blue hats.

Let's not turn it political. Politics aren't allowed on ABW.
Even if it were, it wouldn't be wise for an affiliate manager to alienate a significant portion of affiliates by taking either side.

Good point. I would hope that business and politics stay far apart for my affiliates and I should have done the same.

I just wonder if this is in any way related to Prince Harry demanding to be sent to the Iraqi combat zonel.
