aside on the whole iraq thing

While all these debates go on about whether invading Iraq has made America safer, has anyone been paying attention to what is actually happening in Iraq itself? When envisioning how history books will be considering this episode in fifty years, skeptics such as myself have generally believed the story would be something about how America "won the war but then botched the peace." Lately, I've wondered whether the story is instead going be about how America "presumed it had won the war, but then, as it turned out, lost it."
