Defeatism of the Day

Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean has declared Iraq another Vietnam and says that the US cannot win there.

This comes after the following occurrences in the past 2.5 years: overthrowing Saddam, the first two free elections in Iraq history with another scheduled for one week from Thursday, Syria retreating from Lebanon, Lebanon engaging in free elections, Jordanians protesting against terrorists, Egypt and Saudi Arabia holding their first semi-free elections, and Libya giving up its advanced weapons programs.

If this were June 1944 (2.5 years after Pearl Harbor), the Defeaticrats (see this Mark Steyn essay) would want the US out of France because they would declare WWII unwinnable.
