While I know we will probably be in Iraq for a long, long time and many firmly believe this to be best, do any of you (Republicans) have a personal quitting point? Despite all the hype about the surge working I sense a growing restlessness in the GOP for an exit strategy that would allow for some saving of face. So, if we still have roughly half the benchmarks unmet, say, two, three, five years from now what say ye then? I'm curious about the conservative tipping point on this issue (assuming there is one). For the record, my complaint about international welfare (A/K/A nation building) is basically my same complaint about domestic welfare, all its errors are said to be strategic or managerial mistakes and never ideological ones. So, war supporters, at what approx increment of time will you too be screaming with frustration? Metaphorically speaking. Also, for this thread I have no interest in debating anyone. I'm genuinely curious what the Republican mentality is.
