Just in time for the 2006 elections! Timing is everything in GOP/Neocon manipulation politics: Signs point to U.S., British troop cuts in Iraq.
Just like they saved the Fallujah fighting until after the 2004 elections, they will postpone troop reductions until after the 2006 elections. Of course, they won't mention that the troops who do come home will have reduced health care benefits, or none at all.
Don't get me wrong, I am all for troop reductions. I just think it is sick the way they use these troops' lives to improve their electoral climate. Mark my words, if these reductions do take place, no further ones will occurr until just prior to the 2008 election, followed by the news that Osama Bin Forgotten has appeared in Iran and our invasion of that country, too.
