    If George W. Bush has proven anything, it's that a president can easily overturn or flat-out ignore the policies and agreements of his predecessor.

    How does any of this realistically tie Obama's hands? He gets in office, shitcans this ridiculous "treaty", and starts bringing the troops home.

    Once you remove the delusional framework of BushCo World from the equation, I fail to see the problem here.

    •  "Who Lost Iraq?" (0+ / 0-)

      would be like 1949, "Who lost China" and a McCarthy-like witch hunt would follow.  Much better never to have such an agreement.
