Drop in the Bucket

This is good news, to be sure. Rummy announced that we'd be pulling out 7,000 soldiers early next year. Sadly, this isn't nearly enough.

I'm still a fan of Murtha's plan. What incentive is there for the Iraqi's to stand up for themselves if we're standing up for them? We need political solutions to Iraq, not military ones. I think they'd have a much better time standing up for themselves if we weren't there as we are the main targets. But according to Murthas plan, we'd be in the outlying countries, ready to swoop in if there was trouble the Iraqi security forces couldn't handle.

Read Murtha's Plan if you haven't yet. It makes a lot of sense, which is something very few things do in George Bush's America.
