Our own Brawler has a question for McIlheran about his claims. Namely:
As a supporter of the invasion (despite the admonitions of his pope) and the subsequent occupation, you owe an obligation to your readers to say, specifically. how long you think the U.S. should maintain a significant military presence in Iraq. I mean, if you're going to say people who want out just want to "Cut and run," you clearly need to define how long you think we should be there.
Or, at a minimum, is 20 years too long? Is 30 years too long?
