Is it time to leave Iraq?
U.S. President George W. Bush flew to Iraq with his security chiefs to meet the U.S. commander for a final review of the war before a showdown in Congress over troop levels.
Earlier, British troops quit Basra, leaving the city without British forces for the first time since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam in 2003. The withdrawal from the Basra Palace complex is a step towards handing over Basra province to Iraqi control and an eventual British pullout from Iraq.
Is it time for troops to come home? Are they making the situation worse? Or are they vital to helping the Iraqis maintain security and would pulling them out now be morally wrong?
