Let’s go home (after a little detour)

It seems, Dear Gentle Reader(s), that there’s a fly in the ointment of the Coalition of the Willing’s* plans to leave Iraq in a couple of years.

The New York Times is reporting that a “senior American military adviser in Baghdad” says we should leave Iraq by August 2010, some 15 months ahead of the pull out date which is now scheduled.

Good news. 

Now, will that mean freeing up more troops for duty in Afghanistan?  Or more drones for Pakistan?  How about spending the money on schools for the United States—as well as Afghanistan and Pakistan.

“Let’s go home.  Oh, but on the way…”

*The more or less imminent withdrawal of British troops reduces this entity to, as one wag puts it, “a Coalition of the One.”
