Letter to 'The Seattle Times': Victory with zero
Before the U.S. invaded Iraq, Iran warned this country (via intermediaries) that such an invasion would almost certainly set off a civil war and cause the U.S. to be bogged down for years in a grievously injurious adventure.
Now, George W. Bush claims that an American withdrawal would encourage Iran to develop nuclear weapons! Logic would argue precisely the opposite!
Bush also claimed Iraq offers this country a chance for a "major strategic victory on the war on terror"!
A few more "victories" and the U.S. will be bankrupt.
