Krugman Advises Cut and Run

America Held Hostage : "A majority of Americans now realize that President Bush deliberately misled the nation to promote a war in Iraq...Iraq posed no threat before we invaded...the war is helping, not hurting, the terrorists...victory the hawks promised is no longer possible...pretty much the whole U.S. Army is already in Iraq...time is running out for America's volunteer military, which is cracking under the strain of a war it was never designed to fight...The point is that the presence of American forces in Iraq is making our country less safe. So it's time to start winding down the war."
I really, really dislike every opinion Krugman has on everything from economics, to foreign affairs, to even trival domestic issues. He is one of the rare people I have never read one thing I think is smart, well-reasoned or even vaguely correct. I would like to see Krugman say "the military is cracking under the strain of war" to an Army Ranger or a US Marine. That scene would certainly make my day.
