Victory in Iraq

Today, blogs across the blogosphere are declaring this day Victory in Iraq day.

I never served in Iraq. A part of me (that really insane part, the same part that thought joining the army was a brilliant idea) wanted to go to Iraq, to get myself some street cred or something. I'm not an expert on what's going on there, but it appears things have calmed down considerably since we first arrived.

Enough that people on the ground feel it is safe to admit that, yes, we won. We stuck it out and we won the war.

Now we have to focus on Afghanistan. And Iran. And North Korea. And Russia. And all of these other pesky nations that are not friendly to the great US of A.

Which one do you think will test Obama first?
