IRAQ: CHANGING STRATEGY FOR CHANGING TIMES

Um, Mike, last I checked the Democrats cannot in any way force a withdrawal. They are the minority party in both the Senate and the House. The only way U.S. troops will withdraw from Iraq is if the President as Commander in Chief orders it, or if the GOP majority in Congress votes to pull military funding for the war.

ARE WE MOVING TOWARD A MILITARY SHOWDOWN WITH IRAN?

The biggest stumbling block to doing anything about Iran is two-fold, namely China and Russia. Particularly China. They've made energy deals with the Iranian government as have the Russians. The biggest mistake the U.S. has made was letting China into the position they are in now to begin with, i.e. China owning a worrying amount of U.S. Treasuries and who are not above using economics as a weapon.
Also, we simply just don't have the manpower to effectively threaten Iran. Using air power alone isn't going to cut it. Any air strikes against the regime would only have a temporary effect at best.
