Notes From The Iraq Debate, Chapter I

A friend on the Hill responds to GOP Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's argument on the House floor that, by withdrawing from Iraq, America would show al Qaeda that we can't stomach combat casualties.

Which raises the question, just how many more soldiers should we get killed in order to show them that we can take mass casualties? By that logic, wouldn't a worse Iraq strategy actually keep us safer by getting more of our people killed?
