Cut and Run

What's wrong with that at this point? Nothing in my view, as Gen. Odom and Rep. Murtha have said. The idea that we stay forever in this fiasco is ludicrous. Pull out and support the Iraqi government. Only they can solve the disputes with their own people and the recruits from the neighbors. The idea that Iraqi insurgents will come to the US is ridiculous. A 9-11 redue is highly unlikely at this point, and, of course never came from Iraq in the first place. For that, a little scouting party in the borderlands of Pakistan is the order of the day. That's where the command is.

Everything you wrote: Damn right.

The majority of Americans no longer believe the (false) premise for the war and they don't believe the rationales offered for staying there.
They don't believe in anything Bush has to say about Iraq or anything else, either.

It'll be interesting to see if Congressional Republicans get scared enough about losing their seats and decide to propose defunding this war or whether they'll keep supporting Bush and also whether Democrats win new seats.
