Zbigniew Brzezinski – he whose Solomonic wisdom led us from the Shah to the Mullahs’ kakistocracy – has delivered himself of another masterpiece in today’s WaPo. He, like the rest of the lib hierarchy, can’t stand the idea that we can and may win in Iraq. So he rephrases the “cut and run” suggestion of Pelosi, Murtha and the rest into a choice between “cut and run” (which he paraphrases to a ‘relatively prompt disengagement’) and a prolonged military occupation that the American people won’t support. Does anyone doubt his preference?
Zbiggy says the prez should call in several Dems (such as George Mitchell) to redefine victory. How? In terms of “…an attainable yet tolerable outcome in Iraq.” In other words, Brzezinski wants to redefine victory in terms of an acceptable level of defeat. Anyone who is surprised, please go to the back of the class.
