The Two Wars

There are two wars in Iraq: the real war, reported most accurately on such sites as The Long War Journal; and the imaginative war that leers at us from the campaign literature of partisans and their cheerleaders in the media, most of whom are uniformly a’gin it.

The trouble with the latter war is that the real war is not likely to conform to campaign demonization after the campaign is over and someone other than President George Bush is hoisted into office.

Will that president be, quite literally, hoisted by his own petard?
