UK and Japan will withdraw from Iraq

I learned this belatedly, but the buzz among those arrested last week at the White House massive nonviolent action was that the UK will start a massive withdrawal of troops from Iraq, and that Japan will follow suit. I confirmed this with the Guardian UK. The British withdrawal starts in May.

This further shows that keeping troops in Iraq is not very productive, and that America is losing further support from its most valuable allies. Only Australia and South Korea now will have a significant contingent in Iraq - and in case of South Korea, only because W and Rove coerced it by bribing opposition parties into impeaching its president last year.

You know, if my tax dollars are going toward regime changes in Iraq and Korea, I might as well work toward regime change at home. Impeachment of W is definitely in order.
