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.

Well, let's see, shall we?

In all of these cases it's a bit too early to call. Won't of course stop the suicide bloggers doing their own spinning, given the admitted certainty that western objectives will never be achieved in full.

Example: the recent admission that the partition of Kosovo is the most likely and probably most sensible solution. I agree with that. But it hardly constitutes victory in the terms you set out. And I'm sure our Serbian nationalist friends will agree that it doesn't.

Afghanistan I agree is probably a lost cause in even the medium term.
But Iraq? I don't know. There are plenty of Iraqis who will give the Mahdi Army a bloody hard time. But no doubt it will be spun as a victory by both sides.

Right. In the absence of any response by the suicide bloggers, and because I'm a bit bored this evening, I'll say that it looks like we may win in Afghanistan as well, simply because we are the best. We'll be even better once we've sorted out our domestic problems and got rid of the rich bastards. The Anglo-Saxons have won every major conflict for 300 years, and we'll stay with that.
