Iraq and the Right

More debate. Jeff Jacoby tows toes the line:

But for all the clamor to quit Iraq, there is little serious discussion of just what quitting will mean.

Not on this blog where I've been writing and thinking about that as honestly as I can. Rod Dreher counters:

The ugly truth is, the only way there's going to be a settled peace in Iraq is if the two (at least two) sides fight it out, and separate their populations. If we were to stay there with current troop strength for 30 years, this would still be the case. We are a superpower, but we are not omnipotent.

Alas, our president appears unaware of his lack of omnipotence. He decides and the world must obey, right? And when it doesn't, he just decides a little more loudly.
