Iraqization

For those of you who are either old enough to remember it (not me, quite) or students of history, there was a bit of news that might sound like deja vu today:

US may reduce troops in Iraq: envoy (Reuters): “

President Bush and the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad meet in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, October 26, 2005. (Kevin Lamarque/Reuters)Reuters – President George W. Bush’s envoy to
Iraq predicted on Wednesday that some U.S. troops may be pulled
out of Iraq over the next year, a day after the grim news broke
that 2,000 Americans had been killed in the war.

(Via Yahoo! News: Iraq.)

Thirty years ago, Nixon tried Vietnamization to get our asses out of Vietnam. It didn’t go very well. Now, Nixon II, er, Dubya is getting ready to roll out the same strategy to get our asses out of Iraq.

Good luck, pal.
