    opposing the surge but not the flow?:

    Ending our war in Iraq would be a small step towards stopping our war against Iran. Look, Max Boot is covering the media's backside, the wingnuts have already hung themselves up by their own entrails: the cynical idea that if congress ends it it'll spell political disaster in 2008 is morally bankrupt, and not a little politically shortsighted.

    But what's even worse is the emerging Democratic strategy of opposing an insignificant, meaningless, chair-shuffling-on-the-titanic 20,000 troop increase while leaving the other 150,000 stuck eating sand for the next two years. You can't just oppose the surge, you've gotta oppose the whole deployment. If that's all that happens then the mudslinging about 'abandoning the troops' from some of our basketcase cousins across the isle will stick, and for the good reason that it would actually be true.
