One of the guests on Talk of the Nation today said that he thought that the presidints plan was almost sure to fail. He continued saying that he favored it none the less because we will not achieve a national consensus to withdraw untill it fails. He was sure to mention that he regreted that it will cost us many lives while we fail inorder to achieve consensus.
I could usnderstand saying that it will take the failure of this poicy to bring us to consensus. The leap from that to supporting the policy is however unfathomable to me. How does one support a policy one thinks will fail in a spectacularly bloody way?
That is the kind of shit that makes me want to scream.
