Kaplan is a very astute observer of military affairs; this scenario rings only too true.

Obama will end this war and start another, possibly in Pakistan and/or Darfur.

This is EXACTLY what will happen in Iraq if Obama wins. Remember, Obama is out to destroy our military’s ability to defend our country.

The vaunted “test of Obama” is a myth. They know he is a true friend of theirs at best, a fellow-traveler at worst. No need to test him,, they just call and ask for what they want. How often do you attack people who see the world the same way you do? (hate the constitution, the USA, Jews, Love Marx, socialosm, capitulating europeans,,etc,,)

The Biden “test” rhetoric is nothing more than a scam designed to make it appear that Islamic radicals and Marxist dictators really arent freinds of Obama. And since they don’t, Obama must be on “our” (USA) side. Get it?

“a measurable uptick in violence in Iraq”

A no brainer for Al Qaeda: Once BO is in charge, blow up as much stuff in Iraq as possible, anyway any how, the more dead bodies, especially of Americans, the better.

A nice WMD attack would be ironic.

The US will pull out quicker than than you can say, “quagmire”.

Abortion on demand
Iraq/GWOT retreat
No missile defense, FCS, reduce our nuclear arsenal.
Give enemy unlawful combatants more or less the same rights as a US citizen in the US.
Gitmo closed
Taxes and more government (cheese programs)
2nd Amendment means nothing in a living document
Gay rights all important and Constitutionally protected
Redistributive policies
Global warming is of course all important, like gay rights.
........

Change? What Change? Obama is a typical far left Democrat. The only difference is that he's black, skinny, and talks well; unlike Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and some of the other loony liberal black leaders that arose from the Democrat party in the past. Same message content, prettier package.

I believe we will see a different scenario if Obama is elected. He's already starting to lower expectations for “change.” Obama knows that the draw down of U.S forces are already planned to coincide roughly with his timetable for withdrawal from Iraq. He has always stated he'd keep forces there permanently to guard against a Muslim takeover.

What you are going to see is the end game laid out by Bush, for which The One will get the credit. The news reporting of events in Iraq are going to seem much different starting in January of 2009. Mark my words.

We all forget that Nixon promised to end a certain war a long time ago. How many years did it take him, and how vilified was he? Good luck, Bambi.

"I fear a measurable uptick in violence in Iraq if Obama wins on Tuesday."

I'm skeptical of that happening right after the election. The time to have done something like that would have been a month or so before the election to try to affect the outcome. Not afterward when the results are already known.

But I do think it could happen soon after 0bama's inauguration as part of testing him out, as Biden said.
