Kennedy puts his ignorance of warfare on display
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy yesterday said U.S. troops, instead of defeating the insurgency in Iraq, are spawning it, and he called for immediate withdrawal of 12,000 troops after this weekend's election and a complete pullout by early next year.A really dumb idea when you are winning. Of course Kennedy is such a brilliant military strategist that he would ledt a tiny minority represented by the insurgents who are attacking mainly Iraqis, not US forces , rout him into a stupid retreat.
"There will be more serious violence if we continue our present dangerous and reckless course. It will not be easy to extricate ourselves from Iraq, but we must begin," said the Massachusetts Democrat and leading liberal voice in the Senate, who is the highest-profile lawmaker to call for withdrawal.
