11. I tend to agree
I don't think the Republicans want to be the party that brings back the draft, especially over something as picayune as Iraq. I also don't think they'll pull out of Iraq because these yahoos are congenitally incapable of admitting mistakes, misjudgments or miscalculations of any kind. So what will happen is that the troops that are there now will stay there for month after month, watching comrades get picked off, or "accidented", or just go bull-goose crazy, and the Bush Administration won't give a flying fig. After all, very few of them have any personal experience in combat, and they think everyone sits around all day in air-conditioned offices with reporters breathlessly waiting to transcribe their every utterance while they figure out how to spend an additional $75,000 from the latest tax cut.
