Iraq: We Are Winning, Not

"Let’s check the ballistics here: the United States lost in Vietnam, not because it lacked the “will,” as right-wingers are wont to lament (i.e., the United States didn’t kill enough Vietnamese), but rather because the Vietnamese people refused to accept the occupation of their country. France lost in Algeria for the same reason and De Gaulle was forced into a political, not military, solution—a referendum allowing Algerians to choose their own destiny, be it independence or remaining part of France.

"Eventually, the same thing will happen in Iraq, regardless of Rumsfeld’s Bushzarro mumbo jumbo. It is inevitable."
