The Great Pyrrhic Victory
Obama’s trip to the war zones has afforded him a chance to reiterate his plan to withdraw troops from Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has endorsed this idea. Most seem to be in agreement. Suddenly, Senator Lieberman is suggesting that doing so would be tantamount to “choosing to lose”, I suppose in the style of Viet Nam. The CNN article offers some interesting details.
My idea is that we should simply call it a major voctory. Isn’t that what President Bush said, remember him on that aircraft carrier? This could be one of the greatest pyrrhic victories of all time.
In the wonderful blog, Doug’s Darkworld, there’s a very informative post on this, from which I borrowed the idea for this one. Thanks Doug.
