Let's not give up so easily

As the L.A. Times reports, Democrats are feeling increasingly emboldened to defy the Administration's new Iraq policy. So for once, the Democrats begin to grow some balls and take a stance on an issue, only to be grossly defeatist with their posturing claims of America the loser.

But Jonathan Chait, writing an opinion for the L.A. Times gets it right. [some] Democrats were correct in their opposition to the invasion of Iraq, and even somewhat accurate in their predictions. However, that certainly should not empower them to think that an invasion of Iraq in 2003 can be applied to the insurgency/civil war/inept Iraqi government that is the case right now in 2007.

There are vastly greater global implications that must be taken into consideration today, such as:

Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda among other things.
