Okay here is my prediction its in phases.
I think by next year we will see a decrease from 132,000 US Troops to about 90,000 then by 2008 there will be an Afghanistan level force in Iraq, in
between 20 to 40,000 troops.
Then by 2009 we will be pretty much completly out except for a few instructors possibly helping with the formation of the Iraqi Air Force and Navy.
Also I think instead of leaving Iraq the other colation nations should stay there. Helping to draw US tropp strength down. Cause were the major
prescence there, and compared to us the other nations have had relativly few causalties.
