Troops to Possibly Return in 2006

Monday, July 11, 2005

According to the Associated Press the Pentagon is planning to pull some of its 135,000 troops out of Iraq in 2006. Many here in the United States want a definitive date for pullback, but such information made publicly would be insane because that would be giving away information to the enemy.

My best friend just left for Iraq yesterday after his 2-week leave and will be on patrol in the worst of it until an early month of next year. The last thing I want is for is the insurgents to wait until that time to execute an all-out attack on our soldiers if they become aware of pullout dates.
