Italians Pulling Out

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi announced today that a withdrawal of Italian troops in Iraq would begin in September, to be completed hopefully by the end of 2005.

So that will leave us, the Brits, little Bulgaria, and really no one else with any troop strength at all there---our remaining allies have contingents of mostly less than 100 troops.

Slowly but surely, the penny is dropping in Europe that palling around with Jug-Ears can be hazardous to one's political health.
