Now that we're finally having a national debate on the war in Iraq, I thought I'd bring up something that's been bugging me since the beginning: The most important part of planning is to define success so that you can recognize it when it comes along, and come up with metrics that allow you to recognize progress toward it so you can correct course if it turns out you're going the wrong direction.

Because they keep revising why we're in Iraq, it's impossible to clearly state our goals, making success in Iraq a logical and practical impossibility.

Oh, I'm sorry, didn't you hear? The war will be over when evil is no longer. You see, this way, we can stay at war for the next million years.
