Letter to the Editor
Republicans are in between a rock and a hard place when it comes to their war in Iraq. With the Iraqi parliament about to take a 2 month vacation it’s rather doubtful that they will be meeting the benchmarks that they seem to favor. On one hand Republicans don’t want to lose the war. But it’s not a matter of if we lose but when and the longer we wait the bigger we lose. The only things that all Iraqis agree on is that Americans should get out.
America is still in denial about the war but the denial is wearing off. If Americans didn’t like the war in the 2006 elections they really won’t like the war in the 2008 election. One thing that might be useful about the war is that the Republicans own it and the longer it goes on the more the Democrats get to rub their noses in it. It will be interesting to see how long the Republicans will support a war that is dragging them down.
