How Do You Define "Win"?

More and more people are suggesting that Iran must be involved in any longterm solution to the Iraq quagmire. But Bush has a cunning plan:
"The most important and immediate way to counter the ambitions of al-Qaeda and Iran and other forces of instability and terror is to win the fight in Iraq," Bush said.
But Bush's idea of "winning" is all about crushing the will of the Iraqi people, stealing their oil, and then imposing US hegemony on the neighbours. Mission accomplished!

A former CIA analyst has a better idea:
"Let's say it bluntly. War with Iran is inevitable before January 2009 unless Bush and Cheney are both impeached first."
