"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

Democrats, Mullahs Break on Agreed Timeline Scheme

Unfortunately for “Anti-war Democrats” the reality has sunken in to a degree; “acknowledging the political realities of the Democrats' narrow control of Congress,” they have abandoned their troop withdrawal demands…for now.

This is upsetting to Reuters and “will be a disappointment for many Democrats who think they won control of Congress in last November's elections largely because voters wanted to see an end to the four-year-old war in Iraq.” Further many Democrats will be additionally peeved that not only was the 2000 election stolen; but the reality of stealing it back with lies doesn’t cut the mustard either.

Lines of Communication Muddled

Today’s announcement that congressional Democrats have dropped the withdrawal timeline reveals the inept lines of communication between the Democrats and Tehran as Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini “emphasized the need for the US to present a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq.”

In an interview with ‘Der Standard’ Hosseini speaking of talks with the U.S. said:

"We will hold the meeting because we regard ourselves as duty-bound to remind the occupying forces of the necessity to correct their performance. “

"Occupiers of Iraq should know that the time is ripe for them to give more power to the Iraqi people and leave them free to determine their own fate."

Hosseini was said to have been surprised that the Democrats dropped the ball, but his outlook later rebounded when he realized that it was not Tehran’s fault as much as it was the price of doing business with the decadent and weak West.

Note that I may have made some of this post up.
