Italy will leave Iraq in early 2006. This is what the italian minister of foreign affairs, Gianfranco Fini, has announced yesterday, 11 May. According to the official position, this is not an early withdrawal, but it follows the guidelines prepared by the U.N. I wonder to what extent this is accurate. In any event, what needs to be taken into account is that italian elections will be held in the spring of 2006. A coincidence? Comments are welcome.
