Buckley: It Didn't Work

Is this the "Walter Cronkite moment" for the Iraq war? William F. Buckley, in a National Review article called It Didn't Work, dated 24 February, says, "One can't doubt that the American objective in Iraq has failed . . . the kernel here is the acknowledgment of defeat." How much longer can the occupation last without the old right's support?

I wonder if the Cronkite moment came during Hurricane Katrina -- it became clear to most of the country that the Administration did not have adult supervision and was incapable of offering help when help was needed. A basic trust was broken.

Of course things will only go downhill as we spiral down towards civil war and the frightening possibility of a spreading of the instability among artificial regimes we have been supporting in return for our oil habit.
