Two F.U.s From Now

Two F.U.s from now we'll still be in Iraq. The Last Honest Man and Saint John McCain will continue to say we just need to send a few more troops in to find the ponies. The Quiet Americans at TNR will still be seeing the Iraq conflict as little more than their own personal intellectual struggle, instead of as a genuine conflict with lots of dead people.

It's all very depressing. Will any reporter ask the Last Honest Man about this statement?

So I am confident that the situation is improving enough on the ground that by the end of this year, we will begin to draw down significant numbers of American troops, and by the end of the next year more than half of the troops who are there now will be home.
