Scooping the MSM

        Opinionated Bastard seems to have done it (hat tip: Instapundit).  While the Congressmorons debate reducing troop strength in Iraq, it's already in the plans.

        The Bastard also makes the interesting point that the this is the Viet Nam War done right: instead of installing leaders of our choice, waiting till the country's about to be overrun, then rushing troops in to defend it and waiting till we're withdrawing for proper attempts at training, we sent the heavy numbers in at the beginning, then worked on building a democracy and an Army from the get go.  The result is that next year, we should be able to withdraw some forces.  And we are winning.

        I'd say there's a lot more to our success this time than just those differences on the strategic and grand strategic levels, but I'd agree they were crucial.  And the Opinionated Bastard goes on the blogroll.  Check him out (especially if you ever need to know how to trap a skunk).
