Dan Lehr has a monster-sized post up at Vote08 discussing the failures and successes of the current conflict in Iraq, which, as of today, has been ongoing for five years. (Do you realize, between Desert Storm, the no-fly and other patrols, and now this war, how much money we've sunk into attacking/containing/liberating that nation? Right or wrong, the amount is staggering.)
I have only skimmed Dan's article, but I have to give him an "A" for thoroughness, at the least. Go check it out. He promises to make you uncomfortable whether you're a conservative or a liberal.

Thanks very much for the shout-out!
I have been against this war since the start - to me it's like the man who drops his keys in the alleyway but looks for them under the street lamp because the light is better - but interestingly for me, anyway, I'm much less prone to 'get out now' these days than I was before, thanks in part to the fact that we're finally figuring out counterinsurgency, albeit so belatedly.
