Redeploy NOW! Just not too fast!

C.I.R. Press Editorial

– I thought we heard from the Democrats during the election that there would not be an instant call to “cut and run” should they take control (ooops, did they mislead the American Public?). The President says he is open to suggestions as to how to change the policy. And current suggestions from the left side of the aisle…

Democrats will press President George W. Bush's administration to tell the Iraqi government that U.S. presence was "not open-ended, and that, as a matter of fact, we need to begin a phased redeployment of forces from Iraq in four to six months," Levin said on ABC's "This Week" program.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada said "we need to redeploy," but that the decision should be made by military officers in Iraq.

He said on "Face The Nation" program on CBS that he would not insist on a specific date for drawing down troops, but that a withdrawal should start within the next few months.
“Redeploy” means give up the fight, no matter how much the left wants to spin it. Look if you are for getting out of Iraq say it honestly as opposed to this redeploy garbage. One second Reid says that choice needs to be made by officers in Iraq, then he says it should start in a few months? Which is it? And on top of the “redeployment” talk we have Rep. Pelosi saying that now she will in deed put her weight behind Murtha. He was going to run to lead, then he wasn’t when he was a bad face during the election. His comments being so over the top were not too good for the democrat party. Well they won and now it would appear as though he may be in.

Now it is understood the democrats want out of Iraq, but the question is how can they put Murtha in with his previous comments? How can they be too harsh about getting out of Iraq creating a mess (yes even worse than what is there now… your beloved NIE even stated that pulling out would make things worse) and expect to win elections in ’08?

I agree that the American public is not happy with how things are right now, that does not mean that they want their newly elected officials to make it worse for that country, the region, and hence the entire world. You just start rushing out of there and that is what you have. I want to take back Congress and hold the White House in 2008, however I would prefer not to win it at the cost of the Iraqi people and the stability of the region.
