Not in defeat

Much has been made of poll results showing that a majority of Americans want to withdraw from Iraq. This does not mean most people want to abandon Iraq and leave in defeat. According to this poll (you have to scroll down a bit to see it), 66% of Americans consider it "very" or "somewhat" important that we win in Iraq, and 58% are hopeful that we can.

We've already lost the war in Iraq, in the sense that we've utterly failed to conquer the country and install an effective government submissive to American rule. Iraq is not Panama. The only remaining practical issue is how we can maybe lose a little less badly.
