Iraq War Pessimism: Not Just For Democrats!

Oh noes! Look at who's trying to "pull the rug" out from under the Iraq war effort now! Republican Senators like Lindsay Graham and Saxby Chambliss, that's who! They've just returned from one of their holiday shopping trips to Mesopotamia, and they've returned, seemingly possessed of the belief that the Iraqis need to get cracking on "political progress." But I thought that the Surge was supposed to make that happen!

In what the AP calls "stern warnings," Graham and Chambliss have put Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in the hot seat. Did they vow to "[pull] political or financial support for his government?" No! But they vowed to "consider" doing so! Sometime in January, anyway. The holidays can be so busy, after all--that's something the Iraq government can understand.
