Bush 'to move 100,000 troops'

August 13, 2004
THE United States is expected to announce today that it is pulling 100,000 troops out of Europe and Asia, according to a British newspaper report.

The Financial Times said the withdrawals - the largest restructuring of Washington's military presence abroad since World War II - would be announced in a speech by US President George W. Bush. Citing "people briefed on the plan" in a front-page story datelined London, the newspaper said two-thirds of the reductions would be in Europe, with 70,000 troops - mostly from Germany - being sent back to stateside bases.

"In Asia, the drawdown is expected to include the 3500 soldier brigade from South Korea, recently deployed in Iraq, but will also include scaling down presences in several other countries in the region," it said. FR Reprint.
