The Politics of Fear (NYT)

when Iraq can suppress organized groups large enough to work serious damage, then we'll exit.

if large groups can work unmolested with state aquiescence, one day US cities will disappear, and then we'll settle the matter directly in a few minutes.

avoiding having to make that choice is what the fight in Iraq is about.

Not doing the Iraqis a favor, but preventing a nuclear settlement in the future.

The Iraqis are fighting for us, as well as themselves.

By now, Congress surely can see through the president’s fear-mongering and show him the exit from Iraq that he refuses to find for himself.
