No Time to Go Wobbly

This op-ed by Brendan Minter explains why we should not have a timetable for leaving Iraq.:

The last thing we need in Iraq is a timeline for withdrawal. Victory sets its own schedule, and it's not contingent on the U.S. election calendar. Arbitrarily forcing a timetable on the battlefield will only aid the enemy. Yet a growing number of politicians are now calling for just that--or, at least, a better (read more negative) official accounting of what's happening in Iraq. With polls showing less support for the war and pols parroting that public opinion, we're in danger of losing sight of how to defeat the enemy.
He also provides a quick overview about why Iraq was important, regardless of WMD stockpiles. What he says pretty much matches my views.
