Despite the recent wishes of certain political opponents which passed for news and insightful (inciteful?) analysis in some circles regarding an imminent
surrender withdrawal in Iraq, it just ain't so:
President Bush is not contemplating withdrawing forces from Iraq now despite an erosion of support among Republicans for his war policy, the White House said Monday.
Could this be why?
Turkey has massed 140,000 soldiers on its border with northern Iraq, Iraq's foreign minister said Monday, calling the neighboring country's fears of Kurdish rebels based there "legitimate" but better resolved through negotiation.
Or big pointed firesticks.
