I guess our pen pal, Ahmadinejad, forgot to mention this in his most recent missive to us "noble Americans".

Let's see, we have Syria actively destabilizing Lebanon and, more than likely, giving aid and comfort to the Iraqi "insurgents. We now have Iran arming the Iraqi militia who are killing American troops, not to mention massive numbers of Iraqis. And there are those who honestly feel that that same Iran and Syria should be "engaged" to assist in quelling the violence in Iraq?

It's clear that we are fighting a proxy war with both Iran and Syria in Iraq. In view of the fact that both of these countries have been both facilitators and havens for terrorism, calling Iraq the major front in the "War on Terror" is not a misnomer.

To leave Iraq at this time would send a signal that would reverberate not only throughout the Middle East, but the world at large. I still hold out hope reason will prevail and even the Nancy Pelosis and Harry Reids who now control Congress will see the folly of their premature exit strategy, better known as capitulation.
