Iraq Is Up For Grabs! Come One! Come All!
No, this is not the post I promised. That will come this weekend. Just a short note to point out that if elected, a President Obama has promised to end the war in Iraq in 2009. As anyone can tell, I am for ending the war. Nevertheless, promising such an immediate timetable tells Iran and Al-Qaeda, that, whatever the situation, "We are out of there! Come on in! Do what you want", because we have already made it clear we won't be there to stop you, though it was our invasion that created the opportunity for you to finally get the prize you have both been denied for years and years. Obama seems to be thinking like a child, in absolutes and for immediate gratification, and at this point the Democratic electorate seems to be like-minded. The broader electorate and even the Democrats will probably rethink this in the general election. Unless we want more Republican mess, and at least 4 more years in Iraq under a President McCain (you can spell a McCain Presidency as W. BUSH II), Hillary and the remaining Democratic Primaries better get back on track!
