Kissinger says No Victory in Iraq

Former Secretary of State and noted butcher of the English language Henry Kissinger stated publicly that a military victory in Iraq is not possible.
"If you mean by 'military victory,' an Iraqi government that can be established and whose writ runs across the whole country, that gets the civil war under control and sectarian violence under control in a time period that the political processes of the democracies will support, I don't believe that is possible," he told the British Broadcasting Corp.
Herr Kissinger further claims that we must hop in bed with Iraq's neighbors if we are to make any progress. He did come out of the ether when asked about total troop withdrawal.
But Kissinger, an architect of the Vietnam war who has advised President Bush about Iraq, warned against a rapid withdrawal of coalition troops,saying it could destabilize, Iraq's neighbors and cause a long-lasting conflict.
What crap.
