(Too bad these leftist advocates for abortion didn't practice what they preach on themselves.)

All members of Congress should be tied to their seats and made to listen to this young soldier's assessment. He makes more sense than the bunch of them combined.

"If leave now, it will be a failure for democracy. Iran will control Iraq and the end result will be more terrorist attacks on America."
The writer's excellent "in-country" analysis of the war is logical but, this is no longer about the war - at this point it is about politicians running away. And, now that they have given up and committed to ultimate defeat, they must INSURE that defeat. A victory now would show them to have been in error, and that would be unacceptable.
The ego's of the majority of Congress are now at stake, and nothing is more important. Support must be withdrawn so that defeat is insured. And, if the Iraqi government starts showing success, they must also be undermined. Once a majority of politicians make a "defeat" call, their self-esteem and self-interest, combined with the power to bring it about, insure that the defeat will take place and that they will not get the blame. Watch how it begins to steamroll as they vote to insure they come out looking good.
Ditto, could not have been stated better.
