Iraq – Beginning of the End

Strategy Page says

The war is basically over in Iraq, but the peace brings with it a return to the corruption and inefficiency that has cursed this part of the world for centuries.

All of which makes me think that a timetable for getting out (mostly) may not be the worst idea in the world. If liberation has brought out the worst in the Iraqi people, the War has brought out the worst and best of the American people. Two thirds of the wars supporters and opponents seem like numbskulls – and very loud numbskulls at that. We’re lucky it’s so few. There have been intelligent and well reasoned arguments for and against this war, but you’ve had to look to find them – and most people seem uninterested. This doesn’t bode well for the next war.
