If Iraq is really safer than Washington, D.C....

Then this is sound advice from a very astute reader in Iowa, courtesy of the DesMoines Register's editorial pages:

1. Congressman King should, forthwith, call for the immediate removal of all U.S. troops in Iraq. They obviously are no longer needed there.

2. Deploy those troops in the District of Columbia. Establish a secure area (call it the Red Zone while the GOP is in control; the Blue Zone when the Democrats rule), around the U.S. Capitol and downtown Washington to protect lawmakers, federal workers and K Street lobbyists from the lawlessness.

3. Name Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld chief of police in Washington, D.C.

4. Appoint King as U.S. ambassador to Iraq, where he, obviously, will feel much more secure.
