Betrayal on the Left

So the leftists are outraged at Democrats' abandonment of their preelection promises to bring the Iraq war to an end.

Well, once, shame on the politicians. Twice, shame on the leftists. Even if Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama somehow manages to win The White House, do they really think either will pull all the American troops out of Iraq? Rather, they'll just argue that they've been "reconfigured" to fight al Qaeda exclusively -- as though soldiers can distinguish al Qaeda from domestic insurgents in the heat of battle.

In the end, the lefties will get a lot of lip service from both candidates -- but ultimately, their "plan" to "end the war," if it's ever given the chance for implementation, will do less to actually bring the fighting to an end than it will to signal American weakness and irresolution to our enemies around the world.

Only the most incompetent would need over five years to implement a war. Whatever "implementing a war" means. More likely you meant Bush's failed policy that he keeps relabeling and marketing as something new. I'm pretty sure we're still on that same training them, while we fight them plan. Perhaps better called the sitting ducks in a civil war plan.
