Exit Strategy

Realistically, how do we get out of Iraq? We shouldn't have gone in, and we shouldn't be there. But it would be humiliating to America if we pull out and Saddam returns to power.

Nixon couldn't figure out how to quit Vietnam. Everybody knew the eventual outcome, but he dragged it out for years. He did everything he could think of - he bombed Hanoi, he went into Cambodia and Laos, he left no stone unturned. Nothing worked.

People are starting to realize that Iraq is a loser, but what do we do now? A phased withdrawal? How does that differ from admitting defeat in front of the whole damn world?
