Quick Advice From A Fake Consultant: Listen To Burt Bacharach

Remember the Burt Bacharach song “Knowing When to Leave”?

For those who don’t, consider these lyrics:

Knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing anyone can learn…

And from the next chorus:

… Knowing when to leave will never let you reach the point of no return.

And every day someone mentions “artificial timetables”, that should be our answer.

And then we should offer this scenario to consider:

At the moment, Iraqis are fighting among each other. They are not a united nation, despite the wishes of this Administration.

More and more, the Iraqi population wants us out.
If we overstay our welcome, it is entirely possible the Iraqi people will unite.

To kill us.

Instead of an “outpost” for terrorism, we will have created a Shi'a-dominated united Iran-Iraq terror “nexus” that will turn on it’s Sunni and Kurdish neighbors first, then us.

Then the terrorists will follow us home.

Once again, to sum up:

The administration claims if we leave the outcome will be disastrous unless we can create a united Iraq.

Our response: if we don’t leave now, they will unite.
And that will be more disastrous than we can even imagine.
