Bulgaria Begins Iraq Withdrawal Mid October

Bulgaria's troops will begin their withdrawal from Iraq in the middle of October, the Chief of General Staff of the Bulgarian Army General Nikola Kolev announced.

Kolev also said that the withdrawal operation should be completed by December 31. Still, he underlined that Bulgaria's political leaders are still mulling the form of the country's future participation in the Coalition.

General Kolev explained that the plan for the withdrawal is ready and is now being coordinated with the Coalition partners and the US central commandment.

Bulgaria's parliament, which has the final say over Bulgarian troop deployments, approved in May a government plan to withdraw the country's 450 troops in Iraq by the end of the year. It was also decided that the troops in Iraq are reduced to 370.

Bulgaria's new Prime Minister Sergei Stanishev has said the country will withdraw its troops from Iraq by the end of the year, stepping back from the socialists' vow to pull out the soldiers sooner.

Watch Iraq as everybody leaves. This is going down very similar to Iran. We will have actually done more harm than good in this war. Iraq is Vietnam all over again. Nixon is alive and well through Rove/BushCo.

The ME is pissed. We are going broke. Our country is on its way to being all out Fascist. I live in Jesusland but in reality all these people are actually anti-Jesus. They are the opposite almost all the time. It is rare for anybody to follow his teachings. There is a lot of rhetoric. People rarely practice what they teach and they want to force everybody to affirm their belief in G*D.

Your right , it is not looking good at all ,

the righties will say that it is only 450 troops , but it is not about numbers , it is about another country backing out of what was a pathetic coalition to start .

The coalition was a joke. Going to the UN was a joke. Finding Saddam in a hole was a joke. This whole war is a bad joke.
