Another coalition partner leaving Iraq.

Ukraine negotiating the withdrawl of their troops from Iraq.

"We cannot stay there long," says the Ukrainian Defense Minister, after a vote in the Ukrainian Parliament nearly forced an immediate withdrawl. Ukraine has about 1650 soldiers serving with the Polish-led force in southern Iraq.

This news follows an announcement on Jul. 18th that Poland will reduce their force in Iraq at the beginning of next year. Poland may have a far more rapid troop withdrawl if the opposition party wins the next election.
