Not Absolutely Winning

Gates: Iraq failure would be 'calamity' - 18 Dec 2006 at 2:11pm - WASHINGTON -- Robert Gates assumed the helm at the Pentagon on Monday, saying Iraq is his top priority and warning that failure there would be a "calamity" that would haunt the United States for many years.
"Would be" a calamity? It isn't already?

White House backs off Bush's Iraq view - 18 Dec 2006 at 2:04pm - WASHINGTON -- The White House took a step back Monday from President Bush's confident assertion two months ago that "absolutely, we're winning" the war in Iraq.
How about stepping back from the fantasy that there remains anything to be won militarily?

Powell casts doubt on troop increase - 18 Dec 2006 at 1:30pm - WASHINGTON -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is casting doubt on a plan under consideration by President Bush that would increase troops in Iraq, calling the U.S. Army overextended and "about broken."
Powell is sounding remarkably Murtha-like. I wonder if he's aware what a radical far-lefty he's become.
