    I know some want all doom and gloom, but this just isn't:

    Win? Only if all parties in Iraq, but especially the Shi'ias and Sunnis, sit down and negotiate a political settlement. Victory as defined by President Bush is not probable.

    So, I too, hope for the Iraqi people, that they may lead lives free of the strife and turmoil that has been visited upon them. I also hope our troops will return home safely.
