#1 ...when many in the US are calling for the troops to be brought home soon.

Um, who are those people? I mean, outside of the loony left that started organizing their "peace" marches while the WTC rubble was still smoking.

#2 It was amusing this weekend to see Tom Friedman lecturing a group dominated by anti-administration types that moral seriousness was in order and that it was time to buckle down for the long haul in Iraq.

#3 What goofy numbers! 26% want us to leave. It is safe to assume that the 19% who justify attacks, and 7% of the 17% additional, came from that 26%. 4% are on the fence, so probably should be counted as those who see attacks justified in some circustances. Remaining 6% probably out of the 71% wanting us to stay, but only if we behave ourselves: I.e. as we do now.

Not too hard to agree with them: *IF* we start being stupid, then we deserve to get our asses handed to us. But we won't, 'cause we're smarter than that, and HAVE learned from Vietnam.

Just not the lessons THEY wanted us to learn.
