You may have heard what President Bush said, at a news conference, last night, "Every time you murder somebody, you're a criminal." We couldn't agree more. But, for purposes of clarification, it might help to know if the implied criminality depends on the context, and does it also apply to his foreign policy? If Mr. Bush's axiom is meant with respect to his "stay the course" stance in Iraq, as regards the ongoing pummeling, there are only so many times one can beat a dead horse, and the commander-in-chief might be best served by doing as another former president, Jimmy Carter, has suggested -- declare victory, pull up your troops, and walk out.
