On Thursday, military analyst and AEI scholar Fred Kagan will present a report: �Choosing Victory: A Plan for Success.� They will have some impressive and provocative ideas, including a �sustained surge of U.S. forces to secure and protect critical areas of Baghdad.� Kagan worked on this report with military and regional experts, including �former acting Army chief of staff General Jack Keane, former Afghanistan coalition commander Lieutenant General David Barno, and other officers involved with the successful operations of the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment in Tal Afar.�
Kagan and Keane will present the report on Thursday, 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM, at AEI�s headquarters in Washington.
Now, that will be a report worth reading - you know, it will have the one thing the ISG report lacked: a plan for victory. You know, victory: the thing there is no substitute for? I know, I know...it is a concept you lefties out there have a hard time wrapping your minds around. I'll try to help you: this is where the United States wins and the enemy is forced to accept our terms. It has happened in the past - not since you've managed to gain a lot of influence in the United States, but it has happened. And it can happen again - much more quickly if the left would just butt out of affairs they are ignorant of, but it can happen all the same.
