Why Withdrawal Makes Sense

By TomDispatch

With the antiwar demonstration in Washington this weekend in mind, Tomdispatch is posting a new piece today by Michael Schwartz, "Why Withdrawal Makes Sense." He suggests the essential fallacy in all gradual withdrawal or draw-down plans -- the belief that the United States military in Iraq is part of the solution (a bulwark, say, against civil war in that country), rather than part of the problem. He makes clear that, while the future is obviously unknown, there is good reason to believe that an American withdrawal in quick-time would quickly lessen violence in Iraq and he explains exactly why. This is the single best piece I've seen on the subject and I recommend it highly to you.
