From "suggesting" to "insisting"

Iraq insists on withdrawal timetable for US troops"

BAGHDAD - Iraq's national security adviser said Tuesday his country will not accept any security deal with the United States unless it contains specific dates for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces.

I don't know if Iraq's national security adviser has any say-so in this decision, but it's still rather refreshing to see the Iraqi's state an anti-occupation position.

If only our Congressional Dems could display this backbone: "No funding without... ", well, without just about ANYTHING would do. A timetable. Clearly stated objectives. Clearly articulated milestones towards those objectives. ANYTHING besides the no-strings-attached continual funding (now in its 6th year!).

Meanwhile, a car bomb at the Indian Embassy in Kabul killed 41.

So... we want to keep troops in Iraq so we can fail in Afghanistan, too?

Stop the madness!
