Bugging Out

The Italians will be gone by Friday.

The last of Italy’s soldiers in Iraq will return home this week, ending the Italian contingent’s presence in the south of the country after more than three years, Premier Romano Prodi said Monday.

The Brits are ready to cut-n-run.

Britain said Monday it expects to withdraw thousands of its 7,000 military personnel from Iraq by the end of next year.


British Defense Secretary Des Browne was the second senior official in recent days to talk of reducing the number of British troops in Iraq.

And don’t forget Poland!

Poland’s president said Monday that Warsaw will pull its remaining 900 soldiers out of Iraq by the end of 2007, but no specific date has been set.
