How Much Longer?

Patrick McIlheran and the rest of the local conservative punditry have been trying to tell us that we have been winning in Iraq for the past five years, even though they originally told us that it would be just a quick little jaunt.

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?

  1. These are good questions, and I'm certain that Mr. McIlheran, who is a decent enough fellow, will be answering you soon.
