Bush had a "Plan B" for Iraq after all.

From It'll Probably Happen News:

The Senate has just passed The Defense Appropriations Bill for 2008. President Bush has already signalled that he will sign the bill when it reaches his desk, even though it includes strict guidelines which will end the U.S.military presence in Iraq.

The guidelines for bringing our troops home, first proposed by the White House, were adapted from a Pentagon contingency plan called "Attritional Dis-involvement".

Senate Leader Harry Reid (D-NE) was jubilant at the 99-1 vote margin, saying "The American people said loud and clear 'no more troops', and we have come through. There will be no more troops sent to Iraq".

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said "We have said all along that if we 'cut and run',
we would lose oil (excuse me!) all that we have fought so hard for, and our troops will have died in vain. We will now have the time we need to secure victory for our political, economic and foreign policy aims, while ensuring that our fighting men and women will die with honor.

In a press handout, "Attritional Dis-involvement" was summarized as follows:

Tours of duty for all combat and support personnel presently in Iraq will be extended indefinitely, effective immediately. As these troops die with honor fighting for us, they will not be replaced. This will effectively ease the strain on our treasury, making the war more affordable as time passes.

Over the course of an estimated 25 to 30 years, this gradual reduction of forces will reduce our troop involvement to zero. It is estimated that this time frame may be sufficient to secure our success over those anti-American forces working for an "Islamofascist" Iraq.
