Real Iraq

There’s a great article by twelve retired Army captains in the Washington Post today entitled The Real Iraq We Knew. Here’s the money graf:

There is one way we might be able to succeed in Iraq. To continue an operation of this intensity and duration, we would have to abandon our volunteer military for compulsory service. Short of that, our best option is to leave Iraq immediately. A scaled withdrawal will not prevent a civil war, and it will spend more blood and treasure on a losing proposition.

And the final sentence:

America, it has been five years. It’s time to make a choice.

Who will listen to them? Who will deride them? The usual crew: Limbaugh, Hannity, O’Reilly, and other scum like them will cast derision while the MSM by and large hems and haws, not to mention the Congress.

Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Bush? Quite a few still I guess.
