Stay the course in Iraq
As The Economist so eloquently puts it this week:
'The cost to America of staying in Iraq may be high, but the cost of retreat would be higher. By fleeing, America would not buy itself peace. Mr Zarqawi and his fellow fanatics have promised to hound America around the globe. Driving America out of Iraq would grant militant Islam a huge victory. Arabs who want to modernise their region would know that they could not count on America to stand by its friends.'
Read the whole thing.

Do you recall the scene in "Pulp Fiction" where Travolta and Jackson are bitching and moaning about being sent on an assignment without the proper equipment (handguns instead of shotguns and automatic rifles)? The "militants" would be wise not to mistake such bitching and moaning for an inability or unwillingness to do the job with the equipment at hand.
