Petraeus to Recommend Troop Reductions?
From the BBC: The most senior US commander in Iraq has hinted that he may recommend a reduction in US troop numbers to avoid placing a strain on the army. Gen David Petraeus told US television there were limits to what the military could do, and agreed that next March was "about right" for reductions. The general is due to present his much anticipated assessment of US military strategy in Iraq to Congress next week.
