A Distraction?

I'm just wondering how many of the people who are spurring the president on to send troops to Liberia were concerned about him sending them to Iraq because it would be a "distraction from the war on terrorism and Al Qaeda"?

The rule is: If there is a US interest involved, don't send troops. If there isn't any US interest, then send them.

Quite simple, really.

You know, it actually strikes me as a handy excuse to pull our troops out of Kosovo. Don't know if Liberia would be much better, though.
