We won in Iraq, a long time ago

From Scripting News:

I know this goes without saying, but it keeps coming up.

Remember when our troops marched into Baghdad, took the place over, drove Saddam into a hole and arrested or killed the government. Then we disbanded their army.

When you go to war that’s what victory looks like.

Right. We are getting confused with winning the war in Iraq, and accomplishing our stated goal of a stable democracy there.

The first part is done. The second will never be. It’s simply not possible as long as there’s a large portion of the populace that have no interest in a democracy, but want a theocracy with their particular brand of Islam.

It’s time to actually live up to the Mission Accomplished statement, and get the hell out of Dodge.
