My take on the Iraq Study Group outcome

now, my faithful readers know that i have never supported the war in Iraq.  they also know that I have never supported a quick withdrawal now that we are there.  simply put, pulling out of the country now would be a disaster.  the country would plunge into civil war and the homegrown, newly-trained guerillas would be bolstered and bored.

not to mention the fact that we got these folks into trouble in the first place and that by leaving a power vacuum in the area we open the entire populace to external meddling by other “less well-intentioned” states in the area.

 the Iraqis do not like the idea either; read this and this.
