History may well judge Juan Cole to be the historian of the Iraq war. Since the war began, I have been reading his blog, Informed Comment, for depressing updates and candid appraisals. If you know anyone who believes that the war in Iraq can still be won, I urge you to sit that person down at a computer terminal and have them read this post.
Will a Democratic takeover of Congress be enough to end the war? Probably not. Because the the man who launched the war is delusional. And a Democratic takeover of Congress will surely not be enough to impeach our democratically elected delusional tyrant.
