Put up or shut up...

Remember how all the leftists condemned Bush for being a "unilateralist," and not respecting the wishes of the UN? And International law? and the International Community?" Remember? Any "Democrats" reading this, do you remember? Well, are you gonna respect these guys?

By Betsy Pisik - Washington Times — U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged U.S. policy-makers yesterday to exercise "great caution" in considering any rapid withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Iraq.

"It is not my place to inject myself into this discussion taking place between the American people, government and Congress," said Mr. Ban, who was expected to repeat the message during meetings on Capitol Hill today.

"But I'd like to tell you that a great caution should be taken for the sake of the Iraqi people," he said at a U.N. press conference. "Any abrupt withdrawal or decision may lead to a further deterioration."...

...Other international critics of the war are also warning that a premature U.S. departure from Iraq could have devastating consequences.

"I hated the Iraq war, [but] a hasty withdrawal would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for U.S. interests," International Crisis Group analyst Joost Hiltermann said in Washington yesterday. He argued in favor of a regional approach to Iraq's problems.

Several Arab diplomats and leaders of relief agencies also have warned that Iraq would devolve into chaos with massive casualties if the American troops left too soon...(Thanks to Betsy N).

Of course our fake-leftists won't care a fig about the "Internationals" if it means doing what they don't like. It was always a foul lie. for them the only purpose of all the "international" crap (and likewise Just War theory) is to attack and hinder the US and Israel, and anything else they feel free to ignore.
