No more 'End the War Now!'

The New York Times today confirms that it is easier to campaign on a promise than to carry it out once elected:

'despite the Democrats' victory this month in an election viewed as a referendum on the war, the idea of a rapid American troop withdrawal is fast receding as a viable option.'

Of course it never was a viable option. Ending a war can be a very difficult proposition, as the US learned in 1945, 1952, and 1972--one reason among many to hesitate before becoming involved in one.
