Not even worth any more of a comment Mr L. Talk about someone with a philosophy of "Checking how the wind in blowing".
What a bloody joke.


You can't expect too much from politicians. Someone has to be willing to break with the "contingent" format. pl


It seems to me there has to be a date certain, when most everyone is out.18-24
seems about right for the last troops. We do the best that can be done in that time and leave--NO CONDITIONS!

That's the best option we have, and given the Bush administration's inability to attempt or accomplish anything with a sense of urgency, much less spend any money in accomplishing anything that relates to nation-building, I am not really hopeful of any positive result.
