The VP of Iraq wants a timetable for US troops withdrawal. The President of Iraq supports this request. However, every time anyone mentions removing troops from Iraq, the Right goes into it’s pre-recorded mantra of labeling them with the concept of supporting “cut and run” policies. Of course this sounds cowardly and foolish, which is exactly the point.
It never seems to dawn on these idiots that supporting our troops means that we should care about their well being and not just some glorified concept of the job being done. If we kill them all off leaving none to bring home, will that finally make the Right happy? Will the job be completed then?
Companies in bankruptcy have plans for either going out of business or restructuring. Companies who have a bad quarter have plans for turning things around. Companies who have good quarters have plans to keep things that way and those plans rarely just say, “stay the course.” Staying the course is a sure plan to fail. Complacency sets in and that’s never a good thing.
The irony of this whole thing is that now we have General Casey laying out a plan for troop withdrawal in Iraq and yet the Right magically doesn’t label this as “cut and run.” Hmm. Talk about hypocrisy. It’s ridiculous. It’s only cut and run if a Democrat suggests it. How is that?
