My take on the Iraq mess? Either go big or go home. And, what I mean by "go big" can be summed up in a post I wrote back on November 04, 2004 entitled Troop Level Plan.
Anyway, from what I gather, the US has 2 choices:
Reinstate the draft (Bush voters go first) and get the job done right ...whatever the job is at this point. (um, does anyone remember?)
Get the hell out of Dodge.
I prefer the latter.
