Troop cuts in Iraq may wait, Bush says: "US commanders have said they hope to reduce the American military presence from 130,000 troops to 100,000 troops by July, when political authority will be handed over to an interim Iraqi government."

What was only a marginal reduction in force dependent upon the successful establishment of a client regime clearly may never happen. The US is committed, as ever, to a long term military occupation of Iraq.
