    Just pullout and everything will be better is a plan that doesn't work.

    Well, obviously by the events this week it's clear that just staying there is a plan that doesn't work either.

    Today, many people will die in Basra, Iraq to prove that.

    Those people are dying in Basra and all over Iraq and we are still there. So can I draw the conclusion that people are dying BECAUSE we are there?

    Will those calling for immediate, unconditional withdrawal take notice? Will anyone who advocates withdrawal instead of pursuit of success think about what strategies work?

    Nothing will work to keep Iraq together. We can no more keep Iraq together than we could have kept Yugoslavia together in the 90's. Countries like Yugoslavia and Iraq aren't cohesive and never will be because they have to many sectarian divisions. Even in Iraq if they split into 3 countries, we are likely to see more of what's happening in Basra between the Shiites.

    Isn't it the definition of insanity to keep trying the same thing that you know doesn't work? We need to do something differently. We can't stay there for 100 years (or even 5).

    Sure, if you want to commit about three different logical fallacies.

    Therefore, the military did start trying something different last year, the Surge, and it positively changed (Change!) the situation in Iraq. Of course we can stay there for "even 5" years. We just did.

    Hey, Melissa:

    You have made a spelling error.

    Columbia didn't seize uranium from leftist guerillas, as you reported.

    Colombia seized uranium from leftist guerillas.

    Columbia is the capital of South Carolina.

    Colombia is the South American nation with the leftist guerillas.

    Then again, CODEPINK could be operating in Columbia, South Carolina. They act like wannabe-leftist-guerillas.

    My bad...it is indeed COLOMBIA. Late night posting, spelling, and I didn't agree last night. Or maybe I'm geographically challenged, as my hubby often says =)
