Britain calls it quits in Iraq - combat operations end
The British are calling it a day in Iraq. All combat operations will cease at the end of the year and troop numbers will be cut to 2,500 by next spring. Basra province will be left to the tender mercies of the Mahdi Army, which is the most anti-American militia group that the Shia have. The apologists for aggression will try to spin this as a victory, but it is a bloody defeat for western imperialism. We can now sit back, break open the beer, and watch the Americans as they head towards their final defeat.
Iraq is over! Only Afghanistan and Kosovo to go before the party can really begin.
You've lost, warmongers. How can anyone trust you ever again? You led Britain into defeat.
