The Dumbest Advice Yet on Iraq

Did James Webb really say this tonight???

"As I look at Iraq, I recall the words of former general and soon-to-be President Dwight Eisenhower during the dark days of the Korean War, which had fallen into a bloody stalemate. "When comes the end?" asked the General who had commanded our forces in Europe during World War Two. And as soon as he became President, he brought the Korean War to an end. These Presidents took the right kind of action, for the benefit of the American people and for the health of our relations around the world. Tonight we are calling on this President to take similar action... "

When comes the end? Not yet! Has Webb noticed that Eisenhower's action stationed tens of thousands of American troops in Korea for (as of the current date) MORE THAN FIFTY YEARS, at the end of which the stalemate has not resolved but rather hardened to the point where we now face a dictator threatening us with nuclear weapons??? Is this an experience we want to REPEAT?

Could Webb have chosen any better example to SUPPORT President Bush's claim that leaving Iraq would leave us with a "nightmare scenario"?
