A View from Connecticut

From the NY Daily News
Bringing up the rear
East Haven, Conn.: Rep. Peter King suggested during his campaign we might be in Iraq 10 or 15 years and reminded the voters that we've been in South Korea for more than 50. A little history lesson, congressman: Our troops in South Korea are facing north, toward a possible security threat to an ally. They're not looking over their shoulders at the threat from the population they're protecting. Feel free to debate our role in Iraq, but don't confuse apples and oranges.

If the insurgents had widespread popular support they would have no trouble in disrupting the supply lines between the Persian Gulf and the Green Zone.
