I think that Proyect's point is that even self-serving scumbags
like this guy are now disowning the Iraq war, like rats
leaving a sinking ship.  In the US, people like 
William F. Buckley, Jr., Andrew Sullivan,  Fukuyama etc.
have been all throwing in the towel on the war.
That's certainly a testimony to the strength of the Iraqi
resistance.
