This by Marc Schulman at the more conservative blog "American Future,"
"...We are where we are, and I believe that the American national interest can best be served by redeploying our troops to Iraq's borders with Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Syria to limit the ingress and egress of current and future terrorists. Iraq's perimeter should become a no-fly zone. Our navy can guard Iraq's small coastline.
The quarantine of Iraq would have benefits in addition to limiting the flow of terrorists:
Having our troops stationed on the borders of Iran and, less importantly, Syria would send the message to the Tehran theocrats and the Damascus thugs that a diminution of our resolve shouldn't be inferred from the change in our deployment policy.
