"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Two Deadlines and an Exit - John Kerry - Don't forget about ME!!!

JOHN Completely re-edited and restored to a reality it never was KERRY
Two Deadlines and an Exit - New York Times: "So far, Iraqi leaders have responded only to deadlines a deadline to transfer authority to a provisional government, and a deadline to hold three elections."

Both deadline considerably easier to abide to. Mr. Kerry must continue to toe his line - yet expects something different from the president.

JFK2not, feels a third deadline, one of putting together a unity government or "we're outta here!" Patience, I guess is not one of JFK2not's virtues, as the two deadlines he mentions were unattainable according to him and others prior.

"For this transition to work, we must finally begin to engage in genuine diplomacy. We must immediately bring the leaders of the Iraqi factions together at a Dayton Accords-like summit meeting."

Genuine diplomacy Kerry style would take longer than Iraq has to date twofold. JFK2not is all about bringing people together to discuss, yet he never seems to understand the getting them there if they don't want to part.

According to 2not, U.S. soldiers should perform more of a "garrison" role; yet slowly, day by day that type of role becomes more the reality.

JFK2not speaks of STRENGTH!!! "An exit from Iraq will also strengthen our hand in dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat and allow us to repair the damage of repeated deployments, which flag officers believe has strained military readiness and morale."

Yes, "which flag officers believe military readiness and morale has strained?" Getting nuanced, sorry...

"We can put the American leadership on the side of our soldiers and push the Iraqi leadership to do what only it can do: build a democracy."

FYI: JFK2not served in Vietnam
