Snatching Victory in Iraq
Al Qaida is on the run and being cut down in its last bastion of Mosul.
In times of war, one must watch one's retreating adversary and be prepared for it to pivot and attack. The same is true of one's political opponents.
Witness Barack Obama. Having won the Democratic nomination vowing to end this unwinnable and disastrous war in Iraq he now sounds willing to stay long enough to allow the Iraqi government and our military to win it.
Talk about a pivot.
And to the Democratic base that nominated him: Suckers!
UPDATE: Interesting how the Times of London gets the story but the New York Times ignores it. Only bad news stories about Iraq are "fit to print?" Or maybe its because the London Times is less psychologically invested in our defeat than the NYT folks. Whatever, the NYT is no longer this country's paper of record.
