Nancy Pelosi wants to fight them here
President Bush wants to fight them there. When you cut through all the clutter, that is the difference between the position of the Speaker of the House and the President. Mohammed at Iraq the Model thinks we are doing a pretty good job of forcing the Islamic radicals to fight in Iraq or give up their dream of a new caliphate. If this is true, then we are achieving our grand objective no matter how clumsily we may have fought for it in the 2003 - 2006 period. Our soldiers have been killing the bad guys, and now we have a new team that has been installed directly by President Bush, dismissing those leaders who either couldn't or wouldn't or didn't have the intellectual interest or intellectual energy to discover and pursue a winning strategy.
