The Iraq Study Report

Here's the whole pointless thing in it's entirety. It's 84 pages but could have been reduced to 8 bullet points. The short version:
  1. Americans are "weary" of war.
  2. War is difficult and messy and good people get hurt.
  3. Iraq has shitty neighbors.
  4. We should ask these shitty neighbors to help Iraq instead of being shitty.
  5. But being shitty, they won't help
  6. We should leave at some point.
  7. Leaving will cause still more problems and further destabilize the region.
  8. This report is to be implemented as a whole, even if contradictory.

Charles Krauthammer has an excellent analysis of the ISG report over at
