    "Declare victory and get out."  Our military prevailed in the Iraq invasion (wrong though that was).  Let us declare victory in Iraq and turn it over to the Iraqis,  assuming there are any Iraqis and not just Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds.  We have liberated them.  Now it is their show.  If they botch it, that's their problem.

    Remember all the false warnings about the future if we left Vietnam.  Was it last year when Georgie boy was prancing around in Hanoi in a Vietnam kimono with other world leaders similarly dressed, all so cutesy?  Leaving Vietnam was not the end of the world or a game of dominos falling.  The Vietnamese are better off without us.  The Iraqis will be, too.

    Time for adults to run the country.
