"If you're talking to me in eight or 10 months, and we're not starting to see actual withdrawals, I'll be shocked." - John Kline in the Star Tribune, November 24, 2005

The Blotter (not this Blotter, the ABC News Blotter) is reporting that the Marine Corps has now resorted to calling up troops from the Individual Ready Reserve in order to maintain required troop levels in Iraq. These are reservists who have not been drilling on a regular basis. Apparently the Army has been doing this on a regular basis, but this is the first such call-up for the Marines.

Since a callup of troops from the IRR is the exact opposite of withdrawals, I did a Google search to see whether Kline has expressed any shock over this development. I also searched his campaign and congressional web sites. Nothing.
