There is some talk of major reductions to U.S. forces in Iraq in 2006, depending on conditions.
What conditions would precipitate what level of drawdown has not really been made clear, but it is a start to a responsible Iraq policy.
Not that I necessarily think it will work, but at least things are being phrased in such a way as to make clear victory metricspossible.
More on this as it develops.
That is all.
