Senator John Warner of Virginia has called for President Bush to bring our soldiers back from Iraq by Christmas. It seems there has been an ugly rumor going around to the effect that the military actions in Iraq might just succeed. This would be intolerable to the Bush haters and their friends, the perennial peaceniks. So lets cut and run now, while we can still say it was a fiasco.
Bring the boys home for Christmas. Has a nice ring to it, no? But I question Warner's insensitive choice of a Christian holiday to associate with their anti-war message. Why not "Home for Ramadan" or "Home for Earth Day"? I thought peaceniks all hated Christianity as much as they hate cheeseburgers and capitalism. Maybe it is a trick.
