Wow, what a total wash of BS!
No, we The People, are not winning. Iraqis are winning on our labor and our blood. The U.S. isn't going to see a 'win' out of this. We The People are going to see debt and loss. Not exactly peak ROI.
Seriously, are you retarded? Look at what we, as an unwilling nation, are trying to do. We are trying to institute, mandate by force, a secular democratic government in the heart of hard core sharia country. It's kind of like preaching Aithism to the bible belt. It's pretty close to trying to push a logging chain up the street, its just stupid and futile, and a complete waste of resources.
Stick to what made America American in the first place. The Constitution stupid. If America followed the letter and spirit of the Constitution, we wouldn't have troops in Iraq. That kind of leads to a conundrum..something along the lines of "do what I say, not what I do."
Second, if you want to preach peace, you do so by trade dependence. This whole retardation around peace through 'peacekeeping forces' is insignificant compared to the power of trade. The founders saw this, hell even Penn and Teller's retarded asses saw the potential of trade as a peacekeeping force. Peace through moving troops into a nation to play cop is an absolute inefficient use of resources. Peace through financial independence is a given. Just look at the U.S. and China.
Your whole idea revolves around 'victory' in Iraq. Go ahead and claim 'victory' when a foreign government achieves their goals upon the backs of U.S. citizens. You can call it a win all day long. I call it slavery.

I find it amazing that John can come up with a quite coherent analysis of this subject, but our Australian participant is flummoxed. ;)At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

You are, as usual, making less than whatever sense it was you had last week.

My replies were directed at the Author employing the 2nd person (i.e I called the author "You" because he was the speaker I was addressing). Your name was in the "Originally Posted By" header, along with the ">" link to the original post because it's just proper forum etiquette. I'll go back and fix it so it so it doesn't appear as though I'm refuting your ideas..
