    Carville and Begala say the reduction is happening because the Republicans know there's an election coming up in November. Never mind that we had to send more troops for security purposes during the Iraqi election; and now that there is an official Iraqi government in place, it is time for them to start taking responsibility for their own security and defense. We're simply starting to wean them away from dependence on coalition forces. Some coalition countries have started to withdraw their troops as well.

    Yeah of course. We are after all losing the war. I mean never mind that we diposed Saddam; stopped future weapons programs; strengthend the Iraqis militarily, economically, and educationally; helped them organize and elect their own government; and everything else like we planned. We lost the war.
