Withdrawal to where?

Sir, you are right about there being “No easy route to an Iraq withdrawal” April 11, but one of the main reasons for that is perhaps that the where-to-withdraw has not been very clearly defined. Withdrawing to a place close by, perhaps even to the borders of Iraq, to see how it goes means a world of difference from a withdrawal to Kansas, USA, from where no politician is going to be able to suggest to take any American troops out, for decades.
