Ahead of the Curve

Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) called for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. The GOP howled, the Dems cowered.

Leaders of the Iraqi government and its three principal factions (Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds), meeting in Cairo for an Arab League conference, called for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

Hear that hollow echo?

It seems that Rep. Murtha was far ahead of his fellows in the Congress, and just a step or two ahead of the Iraqis. And now, thanks to that Cairo meeting, we now have the perfect incentive to leave.

During the conference, the Iraqi leaders made a distinction. Pay attention to this, please, as it is rather inportant.

1. Terrorism is bad, because it blows up innocent civilians, little kids, etc.

2. Resistance against an occupying power (in other words, blowing up Americans) is justified.

Faced with that, from our own catspaws in Baghdad, is there any reason now to stay in Iraq?
