National Strategy for Victory in Iraq

Document Actions
Important piece of "critical reading" for background is the US National Strategy for Winning in Iraq from November 2005. It's more "goals" than "strategy" and doesn't spell out the fact that its now a matter of US supporting Iraq in winning rather than US winning. It does *imply* it, but the way the Bushies (necessarily) present their line to the US public in terms of US interests strikes me as part of the problem - as it strengthens (a) the "centrist" tendencies to come up with absurd "strategies" like Pollack's for fighting a traditional counter insurgency war to Win Hearts And Minds - as though they had a puppet government and (b) the isolationist tendencies to fatigue at more blood and treasure if the Iraqis can't solve their own problems after US removed Sadaam for them.
