Musings 181--We've lost Will!

I read everything I can about the war in Iraq and the war on terrorism. (I say terrorism because it is hard to make war on a verb.)

George Will, the columnist for Newsweek, has gone south on the war. (See Link) Just as in Viet Nam, when Walter Cronkite gave up; George Will has now given up on Bush jr. and Dick Cheney's journey into folly--a journey that has killed nearly 3,000 soldiers and maimed 20,000 others. This month has chalked up 103 dead American troops.

Each month there is more and more pressure on Bush jr. to admit to the fact that Iraq is in a Civil War, and that it is time for us to redeploy to the south and north of Baghdad. It is time that we let them kill each other instead of us.

Stay tuned. If we have lost Will, can the rest of the button down conservatives be far behind?
