Boy, there's been some serious deletion work done here!
AFAIK, the Norwegian "forces" (if it's even appropriate to call them that) weren't withdrawn because anyone's concerns, but because they were due to return home anyway and the Norwegians didn't extend the assignment. To say that "Norway Follows Spain Out Of Iraq"
is a wee bit incorrect, in my opinion.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
