Quit Iraq!

  • Writes Pepe Escobar: "The riposte to Pentagon head Robert Gates' entreaties for the Iraqi government to allow the US to stay on beyond the end of the year came swift and sharp from nationalist politician Muqtada al-Sadr: Leave as agreed or face Mahdi Army guerrilla tactics" — I want to occupy you forever.

  • Writes Ivan Eland, "This may be the most unsurprising development in American foreign policy since U.S. forces remained in Europe, Japan, and Korea long after World War II and the Korean War ended, their East bloc foe fell, and all of these countries became wealthy enough to defend themselves from any remaining threats from much poorer countries" — US Out of Iraq. Really.
