Numbers Game

So once again the Bushies are dangling the prospect of "troop cuts" in order to buy a few more Friedman Units until Bush can pass the whole Mess-in-potamia off on his successor. Of course these "cuts", should they actually occur, would really just be bringing troop levels back down to where they were before the start of the surge. And the timeline being floated is pretty predictable, coming during the height of what looks to be one of the most important election cycles in recent years. But I'm sure the Bushies would never be so cynical as to use the US government for partisan political purposes.
