    I say any force that may return and "occupy" areas to restore order, regardless of size, should be considered full re-entry.

    As I understand it, this is only a partial draw-down, and mainly in Baghdad.

    And some are staying as advisors and trainers.

    And more will come back if they ask.

    Actually you are right. In Southern Iraq, in the area known as Ur, there is a massive military base that is to remain for many years.

    I hope the Iraqi government can stand strong and not allow their ranks to be corrupted by the militia's.
    It must feel great to have your country back. Good for them. I hope they stand strong.
