Then What, Barack?

Barack Obama says you can't win in Iraq by sending more troops. In fact, he writes on his web site, "all the troops in the world won't be able to force Shia, Sunni, and Kurd to sit down at a table, resolve their differences, and forge a lasting peace."

Troops, he says, will only delay peace, by delaying the Iraqi resolve to solve the problems they have themselves.

"Themselves," Barack, are the very Shia, Sunni and Kurds who you see never making peace with the help of our military. Will they make peace with the help of their military? Not now, not yet.

Obama offers no solution, just the mandatory Demspeak: redeployment.

What then?

That's the easiest question about the war in Iraq to answer: Then, chaos. Then we'll see the true definition of civil war. And then, we'll prove to ourselves and the Islamist world, that the US can never, ever again intervene in a threatening Islamist nation to protect our interests. We will have forever limited our options, and forever expanded the options of our enemies.

What then? That, too, is all to easy a question to answer. Then it will be a longer, harder, bloodier fight for the peace the Dems knee-jerk so mightily for.
