Let's just say for the sake of argument that President Bush gives a state of the union address tonight at 8 pm and announces that effective September 1, 2007, every single troop will be pulling out of Iraq for good.
When everything blows up in Iraq when we are gone, what will people say then about us leaving? Oh, I know. We will then be the heartless nation who went to Iraq, stirred the pot, and then pulled out abruptly without leaving the people in good hands. Among other things. Anything and everything will be said in an effort to make the Republican party and W look like a bunch of idiots.
We are there. It's done. We aren't leaving anytime soon.
