What If We Lose?

Today’s featured article at OpinionJournal is “What if We Lose? The consequences of U.S. defeat in Iraq.” It’s a good reminder that those who clamor for withdrawal from Iraq haven’t thought through the consequences of their position. They want the “benefits” — no more American casualties (though the Americans are volunteers), a smaller defense budget, and the “good will” of “allies” like France — but they fail to address the costs. The OpinionJournal piece does a pretty good job of addressing the costs.
