Not a Mistake, but Staying Would Be.

Jonah Goldberg's column today is headed "Iraq Was a Worthy Mistake." No so. I think it was a very good thing that we deposed Saddam and gave Iraq's Shiites a chance to take power. What I don't think is worthwhile is staying there trying to resolve the grievances of 1400 years.

I don't care if they have a civil war. America's divisions were too great to be contained and they were nowhere near as old as the Shia/Sunni split, so why should we deny it to these people, who don't want us around anyway?
