    The British have done an admirable job in Basra with it's almost 100% Shia population and hardly any remnant of Bathist insurgents.

    They should be further along than central Irag and they are. This is good news. The Problems Americans face in central Iraq are far more difficult than southern Iraq, yet the British just now feel they can draw down some of their troops.

    Spoken like a true neocon coolaid drinker, carpro. It is not good news. The Brits and Danes are pulling out, while Bushco sends over 20,000 more of our troops. If they believe in the cause, the Brits should be redeploying to help in the "surge". Apparently, everyone but the administration and carpro are seeing the light. Yeah, our coalition of the willing is dissolving, yet this is great news. Unbelieveable!

    Ba'athist insurgents - is that code for the Sunni population? Millions have fled the country into Syria, Lebanon and Egypt.

    Central Iraq is the Sunni stronghold. Do we really want Iraq to be a Shiite country? If you're not aware, the Shiites are the Islamic fundamentalists (the Wahabis are exceptional in being an extremist Sunni denomination).

    Does Prince Harry going to fight in Iraq have anything to do with Britain pulling out?

    That's an interesting thought...

    Show up just when it is over....
    Sorta like me offering to help my wife with the dishes when she is washing the last dish.:laugh:

    We had better watch out, or the French might decide to send some troops and then declare that it was they who should get the credit.

    The coolaid is the notion that this is a negative thing. No evidence to back it up.

    Are you suggesting we import some Sunnis to BASRA to stir up trouble so the British won't remove their troops?

    Your post just reinforces the reasons the southern area is far less violent than the central allowing the British troop reduction.

    Yeah, how can our allies' withdrawing troops as we put more in possibly be negative!

    Do you know what Kool-Aid is?
