Stupid logic

Check out this reasoning in an article by Reuters regarding a possible timetable for withdrawal of troops from Iraq:
Republicans, led by the White House, have resisted imposing any kind of timetable to start the withdrawal of the 130,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, saying that would only fuel violence.
The absolute dearth of intellectual input into this argument is simply breathtaking. A timetable would fuel violence? Apparently whoever thought this up has not been paying attention to reality because it is quite apparent to anyone who cares to notice that all this time there has not been a timetable, and the violence has steadily increased.

Clearly then the koolaid drinkers have thought up a talking point that sounds good if the listener has no idea about reality, but is absolutely laughable to anyone who has a clue. If you follow where they lead us then by golly let us remain there indefinitely for the sake of peace and security in Iraq. The question really is, can they say this to you with a straight face?
