Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, and John McCain keep speaking of "victory" in Iraq without defining what that elusive goal might be. That’s because "victory" for them is reduced to the bragging rights of boasting, "I won, you lost."
But since the War on Iraq allegedly began as part of the amorphous "war on terror," it would be hard put to understand under what circumstances the "victory culture" crowd that believes war is a football game might, indeed, claim victory.
After all, who are they claiming "victory" over? After nearly seven years, Osama bin Laden is still allegedly at large and the anthrax terrorist case has been closed abruptly by the FBI, but still by most accounts –- including the corporate mainstream press –- it is not resolved.
