Jonah and a whale of an idea

A few weeks ago, best viagra seek Jonah Goldberg wrote a brilliant column calling for a referendum to be held in Iraq as to whether or not the Iraqis wanted us to stay.

I LOVE this idea.

If they vote “yes” to us staying, pilule it immediately legitimizes our continuing presence.

If they vote “no” it provides us with a definite end point. (Jonah believes they’d never vote for us to leave. I’m not so sure, physician but I’d also be happy to accept that outcome.)

What seems strange to me is that absolutely no one else seems to find this idea interesting.

Are we afraid of letting the Iraqis have a real democratic choice as to whether or not we’re in their country?
