Many of those who insist that the surge is a harbinger of U.S. victory in Iraq are making the same mistake they made in 1991 when they urged an advance on Baghdad, and in 2003 when they underestimated the challenge of building democracy there. The mistake is exaggerating the relevance of U.S. military power to achieve political progress in a society riven by ethnic and sectarian hatreds. America's military leaders, who are professional realists, do not make this mistake. (emphasis mine)RealClearPolitics - Articles - By Bush's Own Standard, Surge Has Failed
Holy shit! A conservative that understands military force isn't the answer to everything! When are the rest of you going to get it?
