[Being discussed in The Corner and elsewhere.] Damn, people, could we possibly give this effort a bit longer than a week before pronouncing it a lost cause? I realize for some people all wars are Vietnam, but did anybody honestly think this was going to be over in six damn days? Calm down. Take a deep breath. Stop looking at your watch and try to see the big picture. The fact that some of the people who inhabit the country we're currently invading are actually shooting back really shouldn't come as such a complete surprise. People tend to do that during a war.
