Read Nathan Newman on Atrios' response to Salon's article on simplistic arguments about Iraq. I read a bit of the article and I understand Nathan's agreement, but the problem I think is not so much that the 'left' is arguing for pulling out but that many others are as well. My fear is that when we go, we'll do it quickly, only for reasons of domestic politics. Cheney and Rumsfeld should be fired if not indicted, and Bush should be impeached -though he never will be - but if anyone is going to be get stuck with the bill we should. The UN should lead, with us in tow, and with $87 billion and our tails between our legs.
I'm afraid many Americans may decide it's better just to cut and run. But in their ignorance they caused this mess, and they should pay for it. Don't talk to me about Florida.
