*Yawn* Edwards' War Bore

Sen. John Edwards is boring. His Post editorial is pretty standard fare. Here's a taste:

First, we need to remove the image of an imperialist America from the landscape of Iraq. American contractors who have taken unfair advantage of the turmoil in Iraq need to leave Iraq.
Wow. So, the infrastructure will be rebuilt by fairies and angels out of candy canes and lolly pops. Edwards also thinks it is time to start a gradual withdraw--I'm sure he's right, because the commanders on the ground shouldn't decide that little item.
Second, this redeployment should work in concert with a more effective training program for Iraqi forces. We should implement a clear plan for training and hard deadlines for certain benchmarks to be met.
Translation: Do exactly what we're doing, but it's better because Edwards thought of it.
Third, we must launch a serious diplomatic process that brings the world into this effort. We should bring Iraq's neighbors and our key European allies into a diplomatic process to get Iraq on its feet.
Yes, because this last week Europe's enlightened charity for Muslims was rewarded by a series of night time patriotic rallies.

I think I've heard this all before Mr. Edwards, but what I think is funny is your commitment to freedom:
What is success? I don't think it is Iraq as a Jeffersonian democracy. I think it is an Iraq that is relatively stable, largely self-sufficient, comparatively open and free, and in control of its own destiny.
Funny, that's the Democratic goal for America. No sir, no--it is free Iraq or nothing at all.
