What is happening in Iraq is a low level insurgency and a low scale civil war. There is no way the Iraqi government forces, with proper US support can be defeated militarily by the forces currently arrayed against them. Defeat can only come about if the US public fails to politically support our efforts there.

Agree or disagree with the decision to invade Iraq, we are there now and how to win should be the only discussion.
Right on!
