People who need to STFU.
Democratic Congresscritter is quoted as opining that the Maliki government needs to be "sent a message" and that this message should consist of withdrawing all US troops from Iraq.
If you're that stupid, please don't talk about Iraq.
Without US troops in Iraq, what possible incentive could the Maliki government have for not retrenching, holding what he can, and preparing to try to ride out a real disaster?
We aren't "sending messages" here, we are talking about people's lives. And withdrawing from Iraq removes our ability to influence the situation in any way.
I know Maliki is not moving towards political goals as fast as the US would like. I'm not 100% thrilled with him either.
But some days, that's just not how politics works in the Middle East.
