BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Overall U.S. troop levels in Iraq will fall by about 5,000 when a combat brigade completes its pullout from the country’s volatile Diyala province next month, U.S. military officials said on Saturday.

The 3rd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division is the first brigade not be replaced by fresh troops from the United States since the U.S. commander in Iraq General David Petraeus announced plans to cut forces by some 20,000 by July 2008 as violence ebbs.

Al-Reuters just couldnt keep the bias out, could they? The surge is working, boobs! While these troops arent part of the surge, the fact that we can pull them out without replacing them is very telling. Congrats to all of our uniformed folks, you have done a fantastic job! Despite what the Democrats and the Media say, Iraq WILL be a success story and a beacon of freedom and democracy in the Middle East, just as President Bush envisioned. Im just sorry that so many people worked so hard against this worthy endevour…
