Sometimes it pays to ask the people with brains who have done things successfully

Retired Gen. Wes Clark has some ideas about what kind of winch (not wench, you idiot) can pull us out of the quagmire in Iraq. He says:

"In the old, familiar fashion, mounting U.S. casualties in Iraq have mobilized increasing public doubts about the war. More than half the American people now believe that the invasion of Iraq was a mistake. They're right. But it would also be a mistake to pull out now, or to start pulling out or to set a date certain for pulling out. Instead we need a strategy to create a stable,
democratizing and peaceful state in Iraq -- a strategy the administration has failed to develop and articulate."

For all of his comments follow this link, which I am not hyper-embedding, because the hyper-embedder ain't working for some reason.
