The Iraq War debate made Democrats and Republicans in Congress act more like Sunnis and Shiites last week.

The battle is over whether Congress should set a deadline for the withdrawal of American troops. Republicans say this amounts to a “cut and run” strategy.

But don’t worry, if you’re against the war.

Thanks to all the Republicans who are anxious about the political impact of the war, there actually is a rock-solid, guaranteed date by which you can count on America beginning to withdraw troops.

It’s Election Day 2006

One comment on “There Is an Iraq Exit Deadline

    Congress needs to tone down the inflammatory rhetoric, especially a certain member from Ohio. We need a strategy to win this war. Stay the course is a slogan not a policy. I think Senator McCain has put forth the best proposal and should be taken seriously.
    One cannot discount Congressman Murtha’s opinion that this cannot be solved militarily. The Iraqi people must make political and economic progress to build their country.

    “The Iraqi people must make political and economic progress to build their country.”

    I couldn’t agree more, though I would add military progress (through the continued training of the Iraqi army) to the mix. Thankfully, that is exactly what is happening today, though it wouldn’t be if some on the left got their way.

    When Iraq is a free and stable democracy working in concert with the United States to control terrorism, I hope the American people will remember who in our political system tried to pull the rug out from under it. Election day, 2008 should be their comeuppance.
