Joe Visconti on War & Peace
Closure and victory in Iraq means a "work in progress"
Most Americans want closure and Victory. The word Victory in new models of warfare where religious fanatics and rogue nations produce evil acts against humanity may need
redefining to a "work in progress," where the military is but one part of an overall strategy.
As in Vietnam, our military is again winning all the battles, and we must ensure that politicians never again undermine the work of our troops.
But we should understand that in the Middle East, as in Korea, Germany and Japan, some limited American forces may need to stay behind in this region as a deterrent.
