Gordon Brown Rejects Early Iraq Pullout.


www.politics.co.uk

Gordon Brown has rejected calls for an early withdrawal from Iraq, insisting UK forces must honour their commitment to the country.

The prime minister ruled out a pre-determined timetable for withdrawal from Basra and said such decisions would only be dictated by activities on the ground and advice from military experts.

After American criticism last week,Brown has decided to carry on the same path as Blair.
Although the Brits seem to have been leaving certain bases like the Basra Police station and palace,it appears that this is not part of any significant withdrawal of troops from the country.
Interestingly the spin on in the UK media has that Brown wants to pull out from Iraq,and quickly.There have been attempts in the UK media to distance Gordon Brown from US foreign policy in the middle east.
Maybe his first visit to see Bush has changed his mind?

Brown said we are still on course to hand over Basra, which is believed to be in October when he makes his first speech about Iraq to Parliament. Read the full letter he wrote to the Liberal Democrats leader, it's completely different from what has been said in the media. The Prime Minister said when Basra is handed back, a large amount of troops will be removed.

Remember the words he said at Camp David. He will make announcement about Iraq in October and told the President that British Iraq policy was his business, not the US.

Read the comments by our foreign minister too, he said today "British interests" will decided when troops leave, not the United States.

[edit]

plus the title is misleading...

PM rules out Iraq exit timetable, not a full pull out.
