British Out, Americans In
As the Washington Post notes this morning, the Administration took a major hit yesterday with Tony Blair's announcement that British troops are beginning to pull out of Iraq. The Administration is trying to spin this as a good news story on Basra compared to the difficult challenges of Baghdad that require more American troops. The obvious response to that line of poppy-cock is to inquire why, then, aren't the British troops being redeployed to Baghdad to help the Americans. Because they have had enough of this failed war.
