What Does 'Win' Mean In Iraq?

-- by Dave Johnson

Bush says we need to 'win' the Iraq war. Can someone explain what that even means? Didn't we 'win' on 2003 when Saddam Hussein was overthrown as the President of Iraq?

If we 'win' who surrenders? If we 'win' who 'loses?'

Who are we fighting 'against' in Iraq?

Can anyone answer these questions? Any right-wingers care to weigh in?

The problem with this war is that it's not a war. it's an occupation. And the only way to win an occupation is to leave.

Something magical and totally unexpected has to happen to make the architects of the war look great so that they can have been right all along. We're just waiting for that to happen.
