Last night I broke my curfew on watching too much TV news to see the hour long Brian Williams interview with Duh'bya. I figured that with the Iraq elections tomorrow it might be good to see what he had to say. And since he was sitting down with a journalist from a "liberal media" outlet maybe some real questions might be asked. Not the kind of fluff that someone from Faux News would ask. The debate over the war has heated up recently thanks to some Democrats that have found their balls. There has been a lot of talk from Dems saying we can't win this war. The reply from Republicans is that we can win, will win, and that anyone who questions our ability and their leadership is a Commie.

So I ask, What will victory in Iraq be? And will we know it when it is achieved?

This is a question that no one seems to ask.

2,140 American soldiers have died in Iraq. 2,000 of those deaths have come since the "Mission accomplished" speech. The U.S. deficit is at an all time high. Our standing in the world has been greatly tarnished. We are guilty of torture.

Will victory be setting up an Iraq government that is fair to all people and free of corruption? Hell, we don't have that here in the U.S.

Will victory be an "acceptable" level of killings per year? Say something between P.G. County and NYC's?

I agree that the world is better off without Saddam in power. And yes, freedom for the people of that region might make for a more stable world. But the one thing that I think no one in the administration seems to recognize is that the people of that region fight wars. They fight wars based on religious beliefs and they fight those wars for hundreds of years. Duh'bya says we will win, and if he had to do it all over again he would.

So I ask, what will victory in Iraq be?
