LONDON – Britain will withdraw around 1,600 troops from Iraq in the “coming months,” aiming to cut its force to below 5,000 by late summer if Iraqi forces can secure the southern part of the country, Prime Minister Tony Blair said Wednesday.

British troops will stay in Iraq until at least 2008 and work to secure the Iran-Iraq border and maintain supply routes to U.S. and coalition troops in central Iraq, Blair told the House of Commons.

“The actual reduction in forces will be from the present 7,100 — itself down from over 9,000 two years ago and 40,000 at the time of the conflict — to roughly 5,500,” Blair said.

H.L.s Take:
Even the poodle knows when its well past time to get out. Denmark is also pulling it’s troops out of Iraq. Of course Blair, and the leader of Denmark aren’t making millions a day in stolen oil being pumped out of ummetered wells, the way Bush and Cheney are so the financial incentive is not as great.
