No blood for peanuts!!!

Anyone with any knowledge of history knows that an artificial withdrawal from Iraq would cause a bloodbath that would most likely eclipse Cambodia in numbers when it was all said and done.

That being said - the things people will trade for domestic politics is a shock to see. This time, the WaPo and I are on the same page.
The Democrats claim to have a mandate from voters to reverse the Bush administration's policy in Iraq. Yet the leadership is ready to piece together the votes necessary to force a fateful turn in the war by using tactics usually dedicated to highway bills or the Army Corps of Engineers budget. The legislation pays more heed to a handful of peanut farmers than to the 24 million Iraqis who are living through a maelstrom initiated by the United States, the outcome of which could shape the future of the Middle East for decades.
Hat tip PowerLine.
