A great column by Charles Krauthammer on President Bush's decision to redeploy troops from their positions in Europe and Korea that were set during the Cold War. Here is a taste:
Democrats accuse the administration of politicizing the redeployment by bringing it up as a campaign issue. This truly is precious. The Democrats turned their convention into a four-day teach-in celebrating the Swift boats of the Mekong River circa 1968 -- and then question the legitimacy of raising as a campaign issue for the consideration of the nation the most significant redeployment of U.S. troops abroad since the Korean War.
