Also note. Could it be a reaction to the demands of the kidnappers of the British security contractors?
More likely that it's been realised that there are no more goals that we are capable of achieving and that it's simply time to go home.

What he said, but I feel that we will have forces stationed there for another 10 years.

The prime minister arrived at the base aboard an RAF Hercules under the cover of darkness.

He added: "So the great venture that started with all the difficulties we face, that cost causalities, means we have managed now to get Iraq into a far better position.

"Not that violence has ended, but we are able to move to provincial Iraqi control and that's thanks to everything you have achieved.
The simple question being: How do ordinary Iraqis see this statement?

Why the undercover routine, could Gordon not visit central Basrah, under Iraqi Police and Security Forces protection? - To see for himself what our government has achieved?
