Henry Kissinger weighs in

All the Vietnam students and everyone else reading these lines should go on over to the International Herald Tribune and read Henry Kissinger's op ed, in which he declares, "Withdrawal is not an option." I found some food for thought there, especially in his calls for repositioning of US forces, taking them out of the sectarian warfare in Baghdad and putting them on duty along the borders with the neighbors, preventing mischiefmakers from crossing back and forth so easily. He's also a grownup on talking to those neighbors, no matter how ideologically distasteful that might be, dusting off the old Realpolitik. Even if you violently disagree with the entire concept of Henry Kissinger, he's still worth reading.
