"We Haven't Won In Iraq, But al Qaida Has Lost!"Jack Kelly, at Real Clear Politics gives voice to the impression I have. This impression is held by me in spite of the media efforts to continue painting Iraq as lost.
With the continued erosion of any al Qaida power in Iraq the way toward peace is greatly simplified. That said, there is still the matter of the Iranian support for the many groups, not the least of being Muktada al Sadr's, that still cause so much unrest. However, with al Qaida capable of much less today the way is certainly not only more clear, but also indications of those opposing al Qaida are that there is more unity of the people of Iraq as a nation than the media would like to see.
