I guess you support the administrations plan for U. S. troop withdrawal

one at a time - and not televised.

Yeah, I'm surprised people actually consider this a real "plan".

I mean, it's worked so well so far.

New Poll Shows Lieberman Leading Lamont

Quote:
Ned Lamont, whose anti-war campaign rattled the political landscape by toppling Sen. Joe Lieberman in Connecticut's Democratic primary, is gaining support among voters _ but Lieberman still has an edge, according to a poll released Thursday.

The Quinnipiac University poll has Lieberman leading Lamont among registered voters 49 percent to 38 percent. Republican Alan Schlesinger gets support from 4 percent. Among likely voters, Lieberman was supported by 53 percent, compared to Lamont's 41 percent and Schlesinger's 4 percent.

I support the eventual withdrawl based on how soon we can train the Iraqi military to stand on their own two feet, NOT one that is based on a time table.

See, if you plan ahead, you don't need a "wait and see" open-ended withdrawl.

But some were too anxious to blow their wad.

From the NYT:

Quote:
"Senior administration officials have acknowledged to me that they are considering alternatives other than democracy," said one military affairs expert who received an Iraq briefing at the White House last month and agreed to speak only on condition of anonymity.

"Everybody in the administration is being quite circumspect," the expert said, "but you can sense their own concern that this is drifting away from democracy."
Mission accomplished, folks!!

You're sighting a region in which the target population wants the maximum for the minimum. I can see how they are centrist, and maybe even a bit right of center, but I could never consider them to be solid conservatives.

Dreadsox already nailed this comment.

But just to elaborate if need be, I've never heard anyone claim that Lyndon Johnson would be a "moderate" or a "centrist" by today's standards. His "War on Poverty" spoke for itself. He was no less left-wing on the economy than FDR. FDR revolutionized the Democratic Party with a handful of welfare programs that still exist today. JFK on the other hand saw the benefit in cutting government spending to create more jobs and more opportunities for the American workforce.

When you set a time table, you allow terrorists to set time tables of their own.

"Well, Muhammad Headcutter, it looks like the US will be out of Iraq next week, and the Iraqi military is nowhere near having a backbone..."

I never said time table. In fact if they planned ahead the insurgents wouldn't be a factor. If this war was planned the borders would be guarded before we occupied, therefore we could rebuild without constant terrorist attacks.

But no that would have been too much thinking and planning.

You couldn't name ONE war that wasn't miscalculated. I'd normally demand you to, but I wouldn't want to make your head explode.

Yes, for people like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, it sure is tragic.
