British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Wednesday announced plans for the imminent withdrawal of around 1,600 of his country's troops from Iraq.
Too bad it’s far too late to salvage his legacy as anything other than Bush’s lapdog. But now even Blair has had enough and is ready to pull the plug on the Iraq debacle.
Of course, they aren’t playing it up that way. They are simply doing what we should be doing - declaring victory and going home. But the level of denial among Bush supporters is so strong that they are willing to believe anything the Bush administration tells them including the wacky notion that this British Withdrawal (Is) A Good Sign.
