Iraq update

The US defence secretary, Robert Gates, said today that he is likely to stop withdrawing troops from Iraq at the end of this summer, setting the stage for renewed quarrels with congressional Democrats and Pentagon officials fearful of placing undue strain on the American military.

Everyone wants us out of Iraq. However, meeting Jon Pebley has changed my thoughts on the war. The amount of troops down there shouldn't decrease until the Iraqi military is mature enough to fend for itself.
