When you can't even get the French to agree that surrendering is a good idea, where else can you go?
PARIS - French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, one of the sharpest critics of the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, warned Washington against pulling out troops without regard to regional security.As Moonbattery put it this past December,
Villepin, interviewed in Paris by CNN, said a badly planned withdrawal could cause chaos in Iraq, "which of course would be disastrous for the whole region".
De Villepin may be a twit, but he is bright enough to say this of "timetables for withdrawal":The real timetable is the Iraqi situation.
Okay, the French are still not exactly what a reasonable person would call allies, but whereas some people are actively campaigning for our defeat by advocating a precipitous withdrawal, de Villepin is actually being supportive by noting that now we're in the war, we can't quit until we win it.
When the French get off the fence and show more support for the USA than we are getting from some of our own politicians (e.g. Jack Murtha), you know that Vegas must be giving us very good odds of coming out on top. (Read the whole thing)
