Why the Vice President believes the content of his message to the Iraqi government was a good idea is anyone’s guess:
Vice President Joseph Biden told Iraqi leaders that the path to a secure peace lies in uniting ethnic and sectarian groups and said the U.S. might disengage from their country if it reverts to sustained violence.
To which, insurgents will likely respond “Great! All we have to do is to ramp up the level of violence as the Americans withdraw, and it will serve to make the Americans withdraw faster!”
Way to encourage the return of bloodshed in Iraq. If Joe Biden didn’t exist, we would have to invent him.
