A Plan for Victory in IraqSo now along comes a think tank, The American Enterprise Institute this time, with a plan for Iraq that includes, for the first time, Victory. Imagine that? Actual victory over the enemy. Winning. If only. James Baker and a few other members of Daddy's crowd have just freshly minted a plan for ignominious defeat. Defeat is so loved by the Left, and count about half of the American electorate as being on their side in this, that it appears to have the upper hand. It will take a giant of a man to resist the forces of defeat. I don't know if President Bush has it in him to resist them. We can only hope that he does.
One thing we do know: If the President succeeds in this, and changes course in Iraq, and therefore snatches victory out of the jaws of defeat, the American media will never give him credit for it.
