It looks like the Spanish will move with uncharactaristic haste to get out of Iraq:
The process of withdrawing Spanish troops from Iraq has begun and will be completed in less than six weeks, Spain’s new government said on Monday.
Defense Minister Jose Bono said he would not give dates for the troop pullout for security reasons. But when asked at a news conference about a reported estimate of the time needed for withdrawal, Bono said: “Whoever said six to eight weeks was being imprudent because it will be less.”
The headline I was thinking of using for this post was, “The Running of the Bullshitters.”
