Cut and Run?
Rick Heller over at the Centerfield Blog has a good post about new release from the National Council of Churches supporting a bipartisan resolution for a timetable to pull out of Iraq. Rick thinks this is not the wisest stragtey and has some choice words for the NCC. I would also agree that this is not a good strategy. Setting up a timetable might only make things worse than better. This would encourage the insurgents and they would then hit us harder to make us leave. But then, I fear that there has been a faction on the left that seems interested in leaving Iraq to its fate than anything else.
Of course, we wouldn't be in this mess had the Bushies used the old Powell doctrine of overwhelming force and defined objectives, such as how long to stay in Iraq. But then again, this wouldn't have been issue had we not gone there in the first place.
