"Serious" Thoughts on Iraq by "Serious" People

All week, we've been treated to numerous self-serving spin from the serious people about Iraq.

- Bush says not leaving until "the mission is complete." But no one knows what that means.

- Friedman says 10 months or 10 years. But the 10 year plan is a pure fantasy (or, more likely, an absurdity).

- Iraq Study Group - gradual withdrawal with no timetable. Talk about meaningless politics.

- Maliki says Iraq will take over security by June 2007. Ha ... is that deception supposed to save his ass?

None of it matters --- its as Atrios says, with Bush as President, we will be there with 120,000 plus troops a year from now. And I would add with dozens of American troops dying as we continue to babysit a Civil War.
