Michael Moore and Iraqi Election

A remarkably subdued Michael Moore comments on today´s Iraqi election. The only criticism he can bring himself to make is that there is no timetable for the withdrawal of Allied troops.

But he´s completely missing the point - leaving aside what the White House wants (one presumes they´d want to get out as soon as possible) - the Allied troops will stay until stability can credibly be left to the Iraqi police and army - or until the democratically elected government asks them to leave.

Today´s election is a huge blow to the insurgents. It is also a huge blow to the knee-jerk, defeatist oppositionism of the likes of Michael Moore.
