Where credit is due.

Obama's speech today put forward an unequivocal time-line for US withdrawal from Iraq. It ain't quick, almost three years from now, but at least it has been said, and said in a way that it will be difficult to fudge on down the line.

Hopefully, this will not be the beginning of a further build-up in Afghanistan. It's time to look for a way out of there as well, temporizing will only delay the inevitable.
