Britain To Cut and Run

Bad news out of Britain:

Tony Blair is expected to announce a timetable for the withdrawal of UK troops from Iraq.

The prime minister is due to make an announcement in the House of Commons on Wednesday in which he is expected clarify the details.

Mr Blair is expected to say hundreds of troops will return from Basra within weeks with more to follow later.

Some 7,000 UK troops are currently serving in Iraq and about 1,500 are expected to return within weeks.

And who's going to have to replace those 7000 troops? The US. But under these circumstance would the Congress still condemn adding more troops? Of course they would. They have no desire to win this war, and now Tony Blair is letting his want of a positive legacy put further US lives in danger.
