Australia pulling some of its troops out.

Australia has decided to begin pulling its troops out of Iraq from next month with only a handful of specialists likely to remain in the Middle East after June.
The government announced the withdrawal Thursday, adding that it was reluctant to commit peacekeeping troops to Iraq. [...]
"Australia has provided highly effective specialist military capabilities to support the coalition's efforts to disarm Iraq," Defense Minister Senator Hill said in a statement.
"Much of their work is done -- we are now able to plan to bring home many of our 2000 personnel who have been deployed on Operation Falconer."
