Pelosi misses a point

Taking Speaker Pelosi at her word, that success in Basra is the result of cooperation from the Iranians, the question comes up, "Does this mean our policy of strength vis a vis Iran has succeeded?

Do you suppose that knowing that the US will stay in Iraq until the job is done has brought Iran to the point that they have decided they should "cooperate"?

Is Speaker Pelosi telling us that letting Iran know that force will be met by force has encouraged them to become less hostile?

Can we, now that Speaker Pelosi has endorsed it, be comfortable with our current approach to Iran?

Can we now believe that President Obama's approach to Iran will be to continue the successful approach of his Presidential predecessor?

Who can argue with someone as insightful and perceptive as Speaker Pelosi?
