General Peter Pace is Right

UPDATE: Ummm, never mind....

Gen. Pace may urge U.S. troop cut in Iraq

I commend this Pace for trying, but he is still a bigot. But let’s not turn this into a gay-basher bashing party.

According to Reuters, he is “expected to contend that keeping significantly more than 100,000 troops in Iraq through next year would severely strain the military and compromise its ability to respond to other threats.”

I agree 100%. By mid-2008, we should have our forces drawn down to approximately 100,000 soldiers. And we should continue to reduce the number of troops.

By leaving more than 100,000 troops in Iraq past 2008 would be dangerous. The military would be horrible condition, and the ability of the U.S. to respond to other threats would be diminished.

Not that it matters. If any Democratic presidential candidate other than Joe Biden were elected, at least some troops would be pulled out.

It’s all good in the neighborhood, with Democrats
