Bush Orders Gradual Troop Cuts in Iraq

Everything comes to an end eventually.

President Bush, defending an unpopular war, ordered gradual reductions in U.S. forces in Iraq on Thursday night and said, "The more successful we are, the more American troops can return home."

Sounds like a line my mother used on me as a kid. "The better grades you get the more ice cream you can have."

Yet, Bush firmly rejected calls to end the war, insisting that Iraq will still need military, economic and political support from Washington after his presidency ends.

Yeah but that's not really up to you is it?

Bush said that 5,700 U.S. forces would be home by Christmas and that four brigades - for a total of at least 21,500 troops - would return by July, along with an undetermined number of support forces. Now at its highest level of the war, the U.S. troop strength stands at 168,000.

Now the question is, how will America welcome home it's sons and daughters, mothers and fathers? I forsee a lot of moronic behavior.
