Cut and run? 

An interesting juxtaposition of two articles on the current state of Iraq in the NYT today:

On the one hand, ethnic and religious tensions between various groups in Iraq are tightening.

On the other hand, we're pulling a lot of troops out of Baghdad.

Apparently we're determined to restore not just political sovereignty, but military sovereignty back to Iraq by June 30, no matter what the outcome is. This is not good. If we're not there to establish order and tranquility, why are we there?
