Robert H. Reid for the Associated Press: “Iraq’s foreign minister insisted Sunday that any security deal with the United States must contain a ‘very clear timeline’ for the departure of U.S. troops.”

Appeasement!

Or, look, jokes aside how about if we were to respond to this by . . . negotiating a very clear timeline for the departure of U.S. troops from Iraq? I understand that the geostrategists of the American right are loathe to abandon their neoimperial fantasies but surely the cynical political opportunists of the conservative movement can see the appeal of declaring victory.
