Mission accomplished!

According to the Independent (see this), British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki jointly announced that:

"The role played by the UK combat forces is drawing to a close. These forces will have completed their tasks in the first half of 2009 and will then leave Iraq."

To my mind, the timing of this withdrawal suggests that "the role played by the UK combat forces" was to appease President Bush and his bloodthirsty advisors!
