On the military side CBS' David Martin examined the plan to pull combat troops out of Iraq in early 2008. He noted that alternatives were not really viable anyway: "There are not enough troops for a major buildup" and the current 150,000-or-so troop levels are "adversely affecting" military preparedness. Martin warned that even if this "combat" pullout were implemented, "tens of thousands" of troops would remain in Iraq as military trainers and anti-guerrilla commandos.
