Marine Corps Wants Out of Iraq

The Marine Corps is putting on the pressure to the powers that be to remove its forces from Iraq. They want to send marines to Afghanistan instead, to take over the leading role in combat there, according to senior military and Pentagon officials.

This would basically leave the Iraq war in the hands of the Army while giving the Marines a prominent new role in Afghanistan, under overall NATO command.

Sounds like someone is finally thinking with their head. But will G.W. allow it? I seriously doubt it. After all, it wasn't HIS idea. Perish the thought that someone else might one up him. That's more important than anything, right George?
