It has started. Baker & Hamilton, et al are reported to recommend that almost all of our troops should be out of Iraq by the first quarter of 2008.
The press here in the United States will pound all their drums throughout the jungle to make it happen.
London to Paris to Rome to Peking with stops in Moscow, North Korea and points in between will bray that the "once" vaunted super power, the United States of America, just isn't up to it anymore. That the "once" great U. S. of A. has lost "it" as well as its way.
Our newly elected leaders in Washington will wring their hands and cry over their love of America, its troops and all that is good in the world. Then they'll investigate, make more statements and chip away at Bush and the war all in hopes of winning the White House and keep both Houses in 2008.
World "leaders" will, in their best snippy tones, sadly, proudly or arrogantly tell all who might listen that if only that cowboy and America had not ignorantly gone it alone, well, maybe things would have turned out differently.
Terrorists every where will be more emboldened, attacking more civilians and killing more troops with their cowardly attacks. Our troop's moral will begin to bend and sink. The press and world "leaders" will blame Bush and the Neo Cons for both. America's haters, both domestic and foreign, will grow stronger.
If they succeed, we will leave Iraq by 2008.
Iraq will be torn apart. The leaders and people of Iraq who trusted us will see their hopes and dreams die and they will hate us for it. At least those still alive.
The Arab and Muslim world will explode. Moderates will be hunted down and murdered. Extremists and their terrorist squads will hunt worldwide at will.
The free world will, at the very least, be shaken to its core.
All because Baker & Hamilton, et al, in their arrogance, thought they were still in the 1960's and 70's. As does the press. They failed America then and they are doing so now, but then only millions died when America ran away.
Somebody please wake me from this nightmare.

Gore to Bush on Iraq: It's Not About YouOf course, everybody knows it is about aL.
December 06, 2006 7:34 AMErica Anderson
ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: Calling the Iraq war "the worst strategic mistake
in the entire history of the United States" and "worse than a civil war," former
Vice President Gore urged President Bush to find a way to get U.S. troops out of
Iraq "as quickly as possible without making the situation worse" while appearing
this morning on NBC’s "Today."
Worst? How about not responding to:
1993 WTC attacks
1995 US soldier killings with bombs in Saudi Arabia
1996 Khobar Tower slaughter
1998 US embassy bombings with 224 dead, 5,oo injured
2000 USS Cole
"I would urge the President to try to separate out the personal issues of being
blamed in history for his mistake and instead recognizing that it is not about
him. It’s about our country," Gore said in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer.
aL, you are the most narcissistic politician and person on the planet. It is all about you, including your appearance for this show and article.
When asked if he would pull U.S. troops out of Iraq even it was seen as a defeatWhat? Mr inTernet is still in beta mode on Iraq?
for the U.S., Gore dodged the question, saying if he were president, he would
have "the full flow of information" and he would be able to test these ideas.
On the question of whether he would run for president in 2008, Gore once again
said he is involved in a different kind of campaign – to educate people about
climate change – and that he isn’t planning to do so but he hasn’t completely
ruled it out.
Still afraid of Hillary wimp?
When asked if Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is the man to beat on the Democratic side
in 2008, Gore said once again, "I think it’s too early to evaluate the
candidates who look like they are planning to run." Gore gave a similar answer
about Obama when he was interviewed last month by ABC Radio’s David Blaustein.
So, let me get this straight. You, aL genius, have the answer for the question your outta the loop on, but you, aL goRe can't formulate any answers for the questions for those things you are in the loop on.
