Victory Without Goalpost Moving
An article worth pointing to:
We won the war in Iraq.
No, we didn't pull off the idealistic endgame of a peaceful Jeffersonian democracy. But civilians are dying at a lower rate in Iraq than in Chicago right now so it's not doing that badly*. And the government has lots of problems but
the Iraq government can pass a budget
so Americans are in no place to throw stones.
* 2012 stats: Iraq: 14.7/100k. Chicago: 19.6/100k.
