I think Tony Blairs decision was a good idea to withdraw troops because if america's sending more troops in and its his last year in office then its understandable to too take troops out to boost his standing.

I think he is doing this for personal reasons. just because his popularity is going down doesn't mean that he should pull all kinds of troops out of Iraq. I am mad at this person!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!MAD!!!!!!!!!!

I think that he was trying to boost his standing by withdrawing troops. So Tony Blairs is thinking about his career and his is doing this because he is becoming less popular. In his mind if he takes troops out than he will start becoming more popular.

I think he did the right thing by pulling out troops. If we are adding more troops then other countrys can take out some of there troops.

he said that his popularity was going down for putting troops in iraq and now he is taking troops out of iraq because he thinks it will make him popular so this withdrawl has nothing to do with helping others it has to do with him and that is rude.
