The Center Must Hold

A mere year’s commitment by a number of Democrats to funding operations in Afghanistan would be a joke if it weren’t so sad.

Mostly House Dems are making such signals, and not only from liberal quarters, as reported by David M. Herszenhorn in the New York Times.

So why bother? Sure, Afghanistan’s going to be some tough sledding, but upping the ante on fighting only to cut and run is certainly partisan, but also both cowardly and disloyal to the President, the troops and the American people.

Yeats’ “The Second Coming,” was written to describe Europe following World War I. If “the centre cannot hold” again, it will be reprinting widely.
