Clinton says "we cannot win" Iraq war

No shit:
She said the war has sapped U.S. military and economic strength, damaged U.S. national security, taken the lives of nearly 4,000 Americans and left thousands wounded.

"Our economic security is at stake," she said. "Taking into consideration the long-term costs of replacing equipment and providing medical care for troops and survivors' benefits for their families, the war in Iraq could ultimately cost well over $1 trillion."
But is she saying the USA cannot win because it's costing too much? And would that change if the economy suddenly picked up? Dick Cheney's in Baghdad nailing down them oil deals, ya know...
