What now?

Over at Fisherblog, DC joined in with Marc Mulholland and Michael Fisher in a "What is to be done?" Iraq discussion, initiated by Michael's asking a rather pertinent question: what outcome are left supporters of the Iraq war hoping for in the US elections?

On the latter, I'd vote for Kerry - with no great enthusiasm, obviously. More than anything, of course, one must pity the nation that is presented with such poverty of choice. Oh well.

On Iraq, it's very hard to know what will produce the best outcome - the withdrawal of US troops, or their staying on? Above all the legitimacy of a government produced by free elections would seem to offer the best hope.

I touched on this issue before in this post.
