John Murtha's statement on Iraq, yesterday, in which he recommends announcing that we will leave Iraq has two salient points that are worth considering, whether you are Donald Rumsfeld or Cindy Sheehan. It does not matter, at this point, whether the invasion was right or wrong. What matters is that the Iraqi people do not want us in their country, and the longer we stay there with 160,000 troops, the longer the Iraqis, themselves, have no pressing motivation to take up the fight against the insurgency on their own. They simply have no incentive to do so while Americans are doing most of the fighting.
Murtha's statement is worth reading.
