In the Washington Post, Liz Cheney makes the following argument for escalation (or against withdrawal, or against Hillary, or whatever):
If we quit in Iraq now, we must get ready for a harder, longer, more deadly struggle later.It's worth noting that the policies of this administration brought us to whatever Hobson's Choice we now face. Are we really faced either with this unwinnable quagmire or something even worse later? Well, maybe worse than it is now. But if so, that's the fault of Bush, Nanny Dick, and the neocon cheerleading squad (Bush always had a soft spot for his fellow cheerleaders).
Doubtful, however, that it will be worse than what we face if we stay and stay and stay.
Hey, and Liz (can I call you Liz?): a big shout out to the old man for pimping this war and for covering up the smearing of critics.
