Republicans like to say that Democrats don't have a plan for winning Iraq, but Democrats haven't been very good at pointing out that the President's plan amounts to nothing more than "Win!" Seriously, that's pretty much it. And then, when we win, we'll have won. And that will show the terrorists.
In addition to being completely vapid, that is, not a plan at all, the "Win!" strategy wants us to believe that Arabs and Muslims are only able to draw certain prescribed lessons from Iraq. President Bush insists that it's "naive" to think that the Iraq war has inspired more Muslims to take up the cause of violent jihad against the U.S., while at the same time insisting that U.S. victory in Iraq (however he's defining it this week) will make them abandon the cause. Got that?
It's not just that he's relying on a tired set of self-contradicting talking points to defend a non-existent policy. With this administration, the talking points are the policy.
