---A Little History 

FOXNews.com - Bush to Meet With Gen. Abizaid on Iraq Tactics
As bad as the situation in the world is at the moment, there are ways to make it almost instantly worse,
which seems to be the trend in current political polls in the U.S..
As for the situation in Iraq, maybe a historical perspective would be appropriate:
"The best victory is when the opponent surrenders of its own accord before there are any
actual hostilities." -Sun Tzu
"The Nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its
warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools." -Thucydides
"He that makes war without many mistakes has not made war very long." - Napoleon Bonaparte
"The most dangerous moment comes with victory" - Napoleon Bonaparte
“No battle plan survives contact with the enemy” -Helmuth von Moltke
"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has
seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity." - Dwight Eisenhower
