Insurgents Support Our Troops!

Eleven Sunni “insurgent” organizations have reportedly told the Iraqi government that they will lay down their arms in exchange for a series of concessions, the key one being that American forces cease all offensive operations against them and set a timetable for withdrawal within two years. The insurgents’ position is actually more moderate than the liberal Democrats’; the Democrats wanted to pull out within 18 months, not 24, without getting anything in return–not even an empty promise to lay down arms. So the insurgents must really support the troops!

I’m sure there must be a flaw in that logic, but I haven’t yet figured out what it is.
