U.S. commander says no military solution to Iraq

March 8, 2007 at 9:36 pm 1 comment

The newest Commander of troops in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, noted the need for a political, rather than a military, solution to Iraq today.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell Said the U.S. is losing in Iraq and has made a call for drawdown by mid-2007

At the same time, politics are making an end to the conflict all but impossible. Congress is fraught with both whining and nail-biting indecision, unwilling to expose themselves to any responsibility for Iraq if any change were to make things worse; apparently it’s ok to continue for years down a horrible trajectory as long as you can frame yourself as not being responsible – then you can win in 2008 and continue to not do anything. The House Democrats are in the midst of an existential crisis, but anti-war legislators came out with their demands to end the disaster – calling on their fellow members of Congress to stand up and join them.

Let’s hope the rest of Congress is listening. It’s been 4 years too many already.

P.S. Happy International Women’s Day! Let’s celebrate by making the world safer [and more peaceful], not only for women but everyone.
