The Situation in Iraq

Victor Davis Hanson points out the nub of the issue when it comes to Iraq:

Again, the question now is an existential one: Can the United States — or anyone — in the middle of a war against Islamic fascism, rebuild the most important country in the heart of the Middle East, after 30 years of utter oppression, three wars, and an Orwellian, totalitarian dictator warping of the minds of the populace? And can anyone navigate between a Zarqawi, a Sadr, and the Sunni rejectionists, much less the legions of Iranian agents, Saudi millionaires, and Syrian provocateurs who each day live to destroy what’s going on in Iraq?

Here, at least, is one encouraging piece of news: The leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq has been killed.

[Bush] will certainly face the current development as military leaders are expected to do: They are called upon to acknowledge a tactical setback, but to insist on the survival of strategic policies. Yes, but within their own counsels, different plans have to be made. And the kernel here is the acknowledgment of defeat..."

I'm curious, Carol are you planning to add Bill Buckley to your personal list of traitors? After all, we have posts here, here, here, and so on, where you claimed Howard Dean and other Dems were traitors for making less absolute claims about US defeat in Iraq than Bill Buckley did in the recent issue of the National Review.
