"Bush to order pullout by February for 8,000 US troops in Iraq; Will give details of withdrawals in speech today" by Ben Feller, Associated Press | September 9, 2008
WASHINGTON - President Bush plans to keep US troop levels in Iraq near their current level through the end of this year and will order a pullout for about 8,000 US troops by February, when the next president will be in charge.

The number of Iraqis killed by the surge has been around 300 per day, 10,000 per month -- with 1.2 million Iraqis dead since the invasion.

You clear now about those "unappreciative Iraqis," readers?
The president cautioned that progress is still fragile and could be reversed. But he said his top commander and diplomat in Iraq assure him that the gains made there now have some durability.
Yeah, well when it is "Al-CIA-Duh," Israel, and Britain that are responsible for most of the violence, that will happen.
