we can win this war

not my statements, but a statement in an editorial yesterday by two of the most non-"neoconservatives" critics of the Iraq War.
you can read their editorial over at The New York Times with the title

"A War We Just Might Win"

now, what exactly does this mean?
well people much more versed in what it all means breaks it down for us this morning over at The National Review Online..
the article there is titled:

Turning Point?

now, this isn't to say that Dingy Harry and Purse-Strings Pelosi are going to just do an about-face on this war..
it isn't even to say that they will listen to General Petraus' report in September on the progress of the surge…
however, what it does do is put a HUGE chink in their anit-war rhetoric that we are losing this war…
just 6 months ago, I was about ready to believe them considering all the failures of the Bush Administration…
but, with the surge in place and a General in place who actually knows what he is doing…
with an administration bent on learning from its mistakes and making changes and progress (although many don't see the changes thanks to the MSM blackout), I am beginning to see what I hope many Americans are seeing…

progress…
