Partition or leave

An article in the NYT about how the Iraqi government is still utterly useless reminds me of my standards for our next president. I want to hear one of the following two plans for Iraq, to be implemented immediately – either a forced Shiite/Sunni/Kurd partition that finally acknowledges Iraq as a united nation is not in the least bit feasible within our lifetimes, or a complete withdrawal of all American troops. It would be nice if one followed the other, but I’ll take one for starters, because that’s better than what we’ve got now.
