July 1, 2007

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian Prime Minister John Howard is secretly planning to begin withdrawing Australian troops from Iraq by February 2008, Australian media reported on Sunday.

The Sunday Telegraph, quoting an unnamed senior military source, described Howard's withdrawal plan as "one of the most closely guarded secrets in top levels of the bureaucracy."

The Sunday Telegraph said the drawdown of troops would focus on soldiers based in southern Iraq on security duty with Iraqi soldiers.

There you go George, just what you predicted. It's down to Laura & Barney. Wonder if they make Kevlar vests in "Scottish Terrier Extra Small?"***

*** My sources tell me Mrs Beasley has a problem with that whole "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" thing. ;)

Why should Barney, Laura, and George( in order of importance) get the good vests? They don't think our troops need them. And are we really sure that Barney agrees with his master? One of the reasons dogs are man's best friend is that they don't talk back, just like our boy King's advisers!

There's a subtle irony in this picture. Over Laura's shoulder is a painting of another Texan who mired America in an unwinnable war. Maybe w's picture should hang right beside it.
