Troop Withdraw?

It has been announced that the troops in Iraq will start coming home as early as March of 2006. Now call me cynical, but these recent pronouncements have a re-election ring to them. How convient for those incumbent candidates seeking re-election to hang their hat on the return of soldiers from Iraq.

And that is just the first part of the Pentagon's plans to bring home the troops. According to Newsweek there could be as few as 40,000-60,000 troops in Iraq by the end of the year.

If I were an incumbent candidate this would serve me well in the months and the days leading up to the November election. I can only imagine the commercials of the formerly pro-invasion candidate turned bring them home candidate(s) declaring that only their re-elect will cement the mission in Iraq and secure the return of all US personnel serving Iraq.
