1,000 Days: Time to Unravel the Gordian Knot of Iraq

"Why are we still debating the wisdom of a timetable to withdraw from Iraq, when a meeting of Iraqi leaders in Cairo a few days ago - attended by Kurds, Sunnis, and Shi’ites, including president Jalal Talabani himself - called for precisely that?

Maybe they recognize, better than President Bush and Vice President Cheney do, that what their people need now is to be weaned from dependency on foreigners. Iraqis have become security queens, a concept welfare-bashing Republicans should be able to grasp.

Maybe they realize, as Democratic representative and Vietnam vet John Murtha realizes, that Americans have become the catalysts of violence, not safeguardians against it."

maybe is a big word. I prefer probably. Maybe Murtha thinks that, but probably not.

Even to say that Iraqi politicians probably think that is a stretch. Maybe? Yes. Probably? I wouldn't bet on it. There is an election in less than 30 days. Kerry promised to cure cancer with stem-cell research. You can't accept anything a poltician says during campaigns at face value. Why should Iraqi politicians be more honest than American politicians? I'm a patient man. I don't mind waiting until January. Nothing will happen between now and then that is not already meant to happen.
