Troops out, the road to partition and Gordon Brown...

According to a Guardian/ICM poll published today, 61% of voters say they want British troops to leave Iraq this year, even if they have not completed their mission and Washington wants them to stay. A survey for The Independent finds 62 per cent favour an immediate pull-out.
Iraq could break up into different parts eventually, Margaret Beckett, the Foreign Secretary, said yesterday as she acknowledged the limitations to what could be achieved by coalition forces:
"That (partition)is very much a matter for the Iraqis. They have had enough of people from outside handing down arbitrary boundaries and arbitrary decisions," she told BBC Radio 4's The World At One.
Asked if historians may judge that Iraq had been a foreign policy disaster for Britain, she said: "Yes, they may. Then again, they may not."
I rather imagine they’ll view Iraq as the former, Mags. Gordon Brown will pull the troops out of Iraq or at least offer an accelerated plan for withdrawal early on in his looming administration. Gordo’s heart has never been with the Iraq adventure (to his credit). He has invested little or no support or political capital in this bloody enterprise. And it will be a great pleasure for him to administer a sharp slap to the Bliarite tendency. With 119 British servicemen dead so far and 4.4 billion of UK taxpayers money spent on Iraq so far, Brown will be on to a political winner....
