Bush hints at US troop reduction in visit to Iraq

Well - so even the USA are on their way out now, eh? And a hand over to the Sunnis? Well, we never did really like those Shiites did we? There's an interesting dynamic developing here. Iraq has a virtual civil war already. Are we stoking the fires? Could be wouldn't you say?

President George W. Bush, on a surprise visit to Iraq on Monday, said a reduction in combat troops was possible but sniped at “nervous” US politicians ahead of a showdown with Congress. Bush flew from Washington in total secrecy to this desert base in Anbar province, where the US administration has taken heart from the sight of former Sunni insurgents joining with US forces to fight Al Qaeda extremists.
