The Illusion of Acceptable Defeat

Today, in Iraq, there should be no illusion that defeat would come at an acceptable price. George Orwell wrote that the quickest way of ending a war is to lose it. But anyone who thinks an American defeat in Iraq will bring a merciful end to this conflict is deluded.

Much, much more from Peter Rodman and William Shawcross (previously a critic of the war in Vietnam) in an Op-Ed in the New York Times today.

John Podhoretz comments on the Op-Ed.

How many reformed liberals is that now, who oppose a pullout from Iraq? Lawrence Wright, various CNN reporters, Bob Kerrey, Joe Lieberman, and many more.
