So the Dems are pushing that much harder for a cut and run timetable. All I can say is are those guys really that crazy?!! You exit now, regardless of your opinion of the war, and planes will be crashing into every damned US landmark the very next day.
Has it ever occured to these people that the reason that Iraq can't handle the simple goal of creating a constitution may just have something to do with the fact that they'd really rather not be their own independent country? It's not like they had any independence under Sadaam, so how do they know any better?
On the other hand, why not just make Iraq a US territory? I've brought this one out before, and some of the readership gave me a hard time, but it's time to call a spade a spade- The Iraqi people are just not smart enough to govern themselves. I think we give them at least a "charter run" as a US territory, and if it doens't work out after a couple of years, we can at least say we really tried, and possibly the Iraqi people will be smart enough to rule themselves properly by then.
