Mitch McConnell and the big if

Like his Congress-woman friend Jean Schmidt, Mitch McConnell is full of crap and delusional. And he is full of weasel-words. In the Crapquirer, he writes:
While I remain strongly opposed to an immediate withdrawal from Iraq, I do think that we should continue to evaluate the number and location of our forward-deployed troops. I think it is very likely that the number of U.S. troops in the region will decline as the Iraqis are able to provide more for their own security.
No shit, Sherlock. If the Iraqis provide more security, of course the American troop numbers will go down, genius. But it's a big if. In case you haven't heard, the Iraqi government hasn't met a single target for political or economic reform. So you can bet your Republic-ass the security mess is going to continue for the foreseeable future. How people like McConnell can be so removed from reality, I have no idea.
