reports from Iraq

Baghdad - After reports last week that English forces were going to begin a slow withdrawal from the Middle East, the Iraqi Army finally agreed and sided with the Brits' decision.... and decided to retreat as well. "At first we were critical of those blokes, but I think they are right, this place isn't safe" said Omar Shariff. When asked where they were going to go, Shariff continued "to England of course, if they can come to Iraq without passports and a visa surely we can do the same, right?"

Other Iraqi soldiers echoed the sentiment by claiming that "we're pretty much screwed, there's really no Exit Strategy here, plus you can't help question the legitimacy of a national guard which may not be acting according the wishes of those it aims to protect"

Do not feat, I'll keep you updated as this story develops.
