The Latest Coward

War supporters are fond of saying that troop withdrawal out of Iraq is "cutting and running".  In fact, I just heard some Republican representative on C-Span say from the House floor that the mere talk of withdrawal hurts and endangers our troops fighting in Iraq.

Mmmmm.  I wonder what they would say about this coward — the U.S. commander in Iraq, General Casey:

The top U.S. commander in Iraq has submitted a plan to the Pentagon for withdrawing troops in Iraq, according to a senior defense official.

Gen. George Casey submitted the plan to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. It includes numerous options and recommends that brigades — usually made up of about 2,000 soldiers each — begin pulling out of Iraq early next year.

Arrest that man! He’s is cutting and running! Emboldening the terrorists!
