While the Americans are still talking about a sooner-rather-than-later withdrawal from Iraq under in the incoming Obama administration the British are taking decisive action.
The 41,000 remaining British troops will be pulled from the war-torn nation by the end of July.
So too will the Romanian, El Salvadoran and Estonia troops.
If this invasion of Iraq was really the work of a coalition and not just the United States, then it should be expected that the coalition troops would either remain as long as do the Americans or the U.S. troops should pull out by August as well.
Hopefully this is a sign that, with the Brits taking their leave, the Americans will soon follow suit.
