John McCain: "Mission Accomplished" In Iraq?

Maybe he's right, maybe there is victory in Iraq. US and British oil companies are back in Iraq for oil production, and are refining there and profiting from Iraqi resources.

Will there be military victory? Doesn't look like it. Iraq remains a quagmire (even if US authorities may try to spin fewer car bombs as a victory - "it's only very dangerous there, no longer extremely dangerous.").

One thing this war has done is to strengthen Iran, as Iraq has a Shiite government that is friendly to Iran. Though McCain, if he becomes President, would like to "bomb bomb bomb Iran" thus making the whole area into a huge powderkeg.

Can the World afford such a disaster?
