Morning Newsdome: Light up a smooth, new Gooey Lung

>> Stop me if you've heard this one before: President Obama will announce his Afghanistan troop withdrawal plan tomorrow night which will most likely include the Pentagon-backed plan to withdraw 5,000 troops this year. Get them out of Afghanistan—and into other Middle Eastern countries. (the New York Times)

>> Meanwhile, as the NATO bombing campaign against Qaddafi goes into its fourth month, British PM David Cameron has vowed to stay in Libya for as long as needed. Sick Prince Harry on 'em. (Reuters)

>> Tens of thousands of Syrians gathered in support of President Bashar al-Assad today after he promised a vague national dialogue that is too little, too late. The government also offered amnesty for any crimes committed until yesterday—most importantly, the crimes he's committed. (the New York Times)

>> The National Credit Union Administration is suing JPMorgan and the Royal Bank of Scotland for more than $800 million, claiming they tricked credit unions into buying mortgage bonds that were "destined to perform poorly." Pitiful, helpless credit unions didn't know what they were doing with $3 billion of bonds. (the Wall Street Journal)

>> And finally: The FDA polled 18,000 Americans on which images were the most disgusting, and now they are releasing nine warning labels that will cover the top half of cigarette packs starting September 2012. Images include "Sickly Mouth," "My Throat Also Has a Mouth," and "Gooey Lung." Damn I could really go for a Gooey Lung right now. (the New York Times)
