Good Riddence!

Italy will start removing troops from Iraq:

Premier Silvio Berlusconi, facing rising opposition to the war in Iraq and public outcry over the deadly U.S. shooting of an Italian agent in Baghdad, announced Tuesday that Italy will start withdrawing its 3,000 troops from Iraq beginning in September.

I am sure that Italian soldiers have worked hard and sacrificed a lot in Iraq...however, sadly it seems like the Italian government has been contributing a little too much to the terrorists' war coffers. First the two humanitarian aid workers, and now this journalist.

I doesn't make sense to me to disarm the terrorists on one side, and then give them money on the other to buy more weapons. It seems self-defeating. I think it is the kind of help we don't need in Iraq. So this might be a case of everyone being happy...except the terrorists, because they might not be able to extort the Italian government anymore.
