This War Is Lost Won

The time has come to say it: the war in Iraq has been won. President Bush took a lot of heat (some deserved) for saying "Mission Accomplished" as soon as Baghdad fell, but now it needs to be said. The New York Times, perhaps the biggest media enemy of the Bush Administration has stated "The surge, clearly, has worked," though they hedge it with "for now," but coming from the Times, that says a lot. Also, we seem to be working out a timetable with Iraq for a slow withdrawal from the country to be completed by 2011, assuming all goes well. It's over folks, the rest is in the hands of the Iraqis.
