Michael Totten: "Defining Victory in Iraq"

Michael Totten was one of the few rational sane voices in the field of journalism that has covered Iraq almost since day one. He has written an excellent piece about how we will know if and when the war is actually won. He posits that there were actually three wars going on more or less simultaneously and that the one against the Ba'athist regime and its "big man" is the only one that can truly be said "won" by a particular date, whether it be the day Baghdad fell or the day he was pulled out of the rat hole or the day he was executed. Read the whole article to find out what he says about the other two wars. Good stuff.
