Quote of the Day
“Frankly, if there was a President Gore, we wouldn’t be in this particular mess. But we are, and we cannot fail.” — Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, in Time, on what the United States need to do next in Iraq.
I very much hope there will be a U.N. resolution that makes clear the U.S. has military command but that would set up a U.N. high representative to coordinate the political and humanitarian things the U.N. does very well.
If you keep doing what you’re doing, you keep getting what you’re getting. The US command is failing miserably, continues to alienate the Iraqi populace, and is only making things worse. We should get out and let the U.N. take over completely.
