In a similar vein of thought with Ralph Peters article in The New York Post we have this essay from Victor Davis Hanson in which he considers the current situation in Iraq. Professor Hanson closes with this paragraph:
So yes, let us talk about sending more troops, or taking them out altogether, or cry about bad news coverage. But the truth is that, if they were given more tactical leeway to go on the offensive, we would already have enough soldiers in Iraq to win a victory that even a hostile media will have to acknowledge and enemies watching must respect — but only if we persevere here at home in this latest climate of renewed hysteria.
If we commit to victory we have more troops in Iraq than are needed – but no amount of effort is sufficient to carry the issue without that commitment.
