Come on, Dubya, just throw in the towel

For the first time since the Iraq war started, Dubya has acknowledged that things are going nowhere there -- and to make matters worse, not one of the 18 easily obtainable objectives he set for the "sovereign" Baghdad government have been met, not one -- and progress on only eight can be even remotely called "satisfactory." He also, finally, conceded the vast discontent among the huddled masses. Yet he still insists it's not a plan or in the cards for him to cut and run.

Sorry, Mr. President, but doing just that might be the most honourable thing to do. The Army openly admitted missing its June recruiting target by a longshot -- and June is the best time to get new recruits graduating from high school or university. If you can't win their hearts and minds, what makes you think you'll be able to persuade Iraqis of the rightness of the war; which by the way has turned into a civil war with the States caught in the middle.

Iraq is a lost cause. It's time to throw in the towel.
