The clown who's been running Iraq during my, er, "hiatus," has announced that foreign troops can begin leaving some cities.

Well, I suppose that's a nice start. And while I don't mean to seem ungrateful, shouldn't they begin to leave all the cities? Like really, really quickly? Then maybe we can begin cleaning up the mess the occupiers have made. You can rest assured we will be keeping our receipts from Home Depot so we can send a Bush an itemized bill for everything he broke.

That Prime Minister guy didn't specify which cities, but presumably he was talking about ones in southern Iraq. That's understandable, since those are inhabited primarily by Shiite chickens. The insurgency, on the other hand, is concentrated in and around Baghdad, as well as to the north in what is usually referred to as the Sunni triangle.
