U.N. Secretary General Warns Against U.S. Withdraw from Iraq
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned Monday that an abrupt U.S. troop pullout could deepen the crisis in Iraq, and he urged the United States to keep the Iraqi people in mind when making decisions on the increasingly unpopular war.

Ban said both the United States and the international community have a responsibility not to abandon the Iraqi people.

Now, a good conservative would say if the U.N. wants input they need to sacrifice. And we wouldn't be in the mess in the first place if the U.N. hadn't handled their responsibilities with Iraq prior to the war.

However, what can a good liberal say? The U.N. and world opinion should count for a lot.

But regardless, it should give us pause when the head of the U.N. thinks a withdraw would be so dire that he is unwilling to toe the leftist line. That's serious.
