The article reports on the plan of the U.S. Grand Old Party (GOP) centrists to increase the army troop withdrawals in Iraq. The idea was made after Gen. David Petraeus, commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, proposed a 30,000 troops withdrawal which would only bring minor changes to the situation. According to Senator Susan Collins, keeping more troops in Iraq for at least another 10 months would only result more casualties and will not prompt the Iraqi government to enact political reforms.
