I don’t know what all the confusion is about the Bush Plan for Iraq, it seems pretty clear to me.
We can’t cut back on our troops because conditions will get worse if we do, which means we certainly can;t cut back if things get worse either. On the other hand, if things somehow get better, we can’t back on our troops then either because things might then get worse again.
There is no plan, of course, no timetable, no end game, no idea of what the hell we’re doing. Or why.
Simple as that. Why is anybody confused?
