I made a comment several threads back that speaking of "winning" or "losing" in Iraq was misguided and counerproductive..
Leave it to someone much smarter to explain in detail why...
With Harry Reid's controversial 'war is lost' quote and with various other pols weighing in on whether we can 'win' or whether it's 'lost', it's a good time to consider what the hell we're actually talking about. Frankly, the whole question is stupid. Or at least it's a very stilted way of understanding what's happening, geared to guarantee President Bush's goal of staying in Iraq forever.
