Polls and Fallujah 

George Will this morning explains why weakness in the face of the Fallujah insurgents will cause more problems than it avoids.

The pullback from Fallujah is a terrible mistake. Leaving a core of armed, violent, unrepentant fascists in the charge of an ex-Saddamite general and his troops looks way too much like backing down. It is almost certainly a factor in wavering support here, where Americans want to finish the job, and in Iraq, where people support whoever's winning. Nobody can ever say our Marines lack guts, but once again, it looks as though our political leadership might.
