George Will Calls for Immediate Retreat

Now that Afghanistan and Iraq are Barack Obama’s problems, it’s suddenly becoming fashionable for right-wing pundits to call for cutting and running.

Days after urging the withdrawal of U.S. combat forces from Afghanistan, conservative columnist George F. Will is calling on the administration to speed up the planned drawdown in Iraq, according to publishing sources.

Will concludes that America’s work is done in Iraq. So in one week, one of the nation’s best-known conservatives has endorsed U.S. withdrawal from both wars.

“Two more years of U.S. military presence cannot control whether that is in Iraq’s future,” Will writes in a column posted Thursday on washingtonpost.com, which links the column from its Opinions page with: “Time to Leave Iraq.”

“If … the surge permanently dampened sectarian violence, all U.S. forces can come home sooner than the end of 2011. If, however, the surge did not so succeed, U.S. forces must come home sooner.”

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
