Iraq Solution du Jour 

As you all know, I was gullible enough to believe that Bush/Rove/Cheney wouldn’t lie in order to start a war.  Money is one thing, killing people’s kids for political expediency is something heinous.

But we’re in Iraq, and I do believe that we have to leave it a reasonably stable place before we go.  But my brethren on the leftier side have a good point in their belief that it’s the Iraqi’s country.

So my solution (du jour) is this:  withdraw one American soldier for each Iraqi soldier or policeman who is alive and well after 90 days.  

It’s a pretty unfinished solution.  But if the problem is between bringing the Iraqi security force along far enough to defend themselves and American soldiers who already have the training and experience to do the job right away; then shouldn’t we be able to withdraw our troops as theirs become more seasoned?  The Washigntonians (meaning Dems and Repubs) want us to think pull them all out now, or leave them all there forever.  Again, there’s no chance for a compromise based in logic.  Typical.

Why can’t policy be dictated by what makes sense for the situation?
