It looks like President Bush's main ally in Iraq is on the way out. Yesterday's announcement by the British government served notice that Her majesty's army will reduce troop numbers in Iraq by 10% this spring. Currently 8,500 British soldiers serve in Iraq, down from 46,000 in 2003. I think it's safe to say that Bush's "coalition of the willing" is no longer willing.
Good. This is Bush's war alone, really.
