"There is no response other than venom and ... lies" [LINK]
Mark Roddy identifies the two camps debating the Iraq war as the "stay-and-die" and "cut-and-run" factions. It's interesting that he identifies himself with the latter phrase, but it's also galling that he labels cut-and-run advocates as the "reality-based community."
Like so many critics of the Bush administration I read in these pages, Mr. Roddy dwells on the casualties of war, but nowhere considers the results of a premature withdrawal or presents an alternative long-term strategy for that troubling region. Those who call themselves "reality-based" should earn that right.
