(Corrects headline in Nov. 13 story to make clear troop reduction applies to Iraq, not specifically Diyala province)

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – The U.S. military is sending 3,000 soldiers home from Diyala province, the second large unit to leave Iraq as troop levels are cut after a 30,000-strong “surge” earlier this year.

Soldiers from the 3rd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, will not be replaced by a new unit when they leave the ethnically and religiously mixed province north of Baghdad by January, U.S. military officials said on Tuesday.

Instead, troops from the larger 4th Striker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, located near Baghdad, will take over the area, said Major Peggy Kageleiry, spokeswoman for U.S. forces in northern Iraq.

Well, now you know why the media has been focusing on healthcare and oil, the Surge is working. Iraq will be a success story, but since it wont be a Democrat success story, it needed to ripped apart for four years by the Democrats and their communication organ-the Mainstream media. Shame on the liberals and democrats for not backing their own citizens who were in harms way..

    The Iraqi’s have been stepping up. They have asked that Coalition forces back off when the Iraqis clear out terrorist enclaves. They are doing it themselves now, after taught them how. Long Live a Free and Democratic Iraq!!
