Subject: RE: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?

It breaks my heart to have to tell you that realism is actually rather useful in foreign policy analysis--you may want to try it some day. It should be obvious even to you that winning Sunni approval of any Iraqi government is the only way that government can survive. Without Sunni support of the government, the supply of insurgents is bottomless.

And, as I said, unless Bush and the Bushites (including your good self) can tell us why the Coalition troops should stay in Iraq, we'll be forced to the conclusion that you have no idea--and therefore they should come home.

And I'm still waiting for your description of "victory" in Iraq.
