I read "Iraq Drawdown on Track" by Army Sgt 1st class Michael J. Carden, whats important is that the withdraw from Iraq is going according to plan. Since January, the U.S. military footprint in Iraq has decreased from more than 143,000 troops to about 120,000. I think that this is a very good thing because it means that there is less fighting going on in Iraq and there will be less and less deaths. By June 30 the Department of Defense (DOD) hopes to send an assistance and advisory force for the Iraqis to help rehabilitate them and help them create a stable government. This is good for us and Iraq because there will be no more war and we can get oil from them again hopefully.
