The current prime minister of Iraq mentioned joining the Taliban. Our president is shocked by such a statement. Am I the only one who thinks that maybe the message is a request that we stay in Iraq for a lot longer with a large fighting force, because the bad guys do know our withdrawal schedule and very, very likely plan to wait until we’re gone and then kill everyone who has anything to do with the current government? Granted, the Iraqi national government is a mass of confusion with all kinds of claims and counter claims about who won the recent election. But we do want a stable government in Iraq don’t we? I thought that was the goal.
