The Republicans' restiveness suggests that Bush may not be able to stick with his current Iraq policy through Election Day. Even if he does, he will come under heavy pressure from his own party after Nov. 7 to pursue a demonstrably more effective strategy -- or to begin pulling American forces out.
But he won't. There won't be a more effective strategy. And forces won't be pulled out.
This has been made clear over and over again. I don't know why people refuse to listen.
