From We Can Put More Forces in Iraq..., by Frederick W. Kagan (The Weekly Standard, November 23, 2006) (view)
|"Still, the Bush administration has 29 months left in office. ``Staying the course" is unsustainable. Rather than forcing a new administration to figure a way out of Iraq, it ought to begin the rethinking now."|
From The generals' worry, by The Boston Globe editorial board (The Boston Globe, August 5, 2006) (view)
|"The majority of Iraqis may be irritated by the presence of foreign forces, but most realize that a premature withdrawal would create hideous problems for the country. This majority includes Sunnis as well as Shiites and Kurds."|
|"At best, the course we're on has no end in sight. At worst, it leads to a terrible civil war and possibly a regional war. This plan offers a way to bring our troops home, protect our security interests and preserve Iraq as a unified country."|
|"As Americans debate where to go from here on Iraq, one thing should be clear. Staying the course until President Bush leaves office 29 months from now is not an option. It is no longer even clear just what course America is on."|
