Cut and run: Bush heralds cut in troops as British forces exit

"President George Bush flew into a US airbase in Anbar province in western Iraq yesterday to announce that recent American military successes would allow a reduction in the 160,000-strong US force in Iraq.

"He said that, judging by what he had been told by US commander General David Petraeus and ambassador Ryan Crocker, 'it will be possible to maintain the same level of security with fewer American forces.'"
