How Will the Neo-Cons Spin This?

When Russ Feingold called for a timetable for bringing home the troops from Iraq, the right wing attacked him. As always they parroted the Administration’s “stay the course” rhetoric. It now looks like the troops actually support the Feingold policy. A new Zogby Poll found that 72% of American troops serving in Iraq think the U.S. should exit the country within the next year. Nearly one in four say the troops should leave immediately. This could prove a little difficult for the right wing propaganda machine. Will they accuse the troops of not supporting themselves? Will they accuse them of having a “cut and run” strategy?

The neo-cons are hard at work and do all they can to keep the tropps in Iraq indefinately. While we may end up pulling some troops out, the fact remains that the neo-cons will argue that it is in our "strategic best interest" to stay in Iraq with some presence.

Going into Iraq had nothing to do with WMD's or terror and the neo-cons know it. On the other hand, it has everything to do with gaining a strategic hold in the middleast.

Welcome to the New World Order.
