What does winning look like?

Once again McCain is pounding on Obama for "defeatism" in his stand on the war in Iraq. Says McCain to a convention of disabled vets, "Both candidates in this election pledge to end this war and bring our troops home. The great difference is that I intend to win it first." Okay,'ve said time and again that you intend the USA to win the war. Tell me, what does winning look like?

Is it turning Iraq into a sheet of radioactive glass? Oh, maybe it is when the whole population drops their copies of the Qur'an, picks up the Bible and shouts praises to Cheezus? Or could it be when Shiites and the Sunnis throw down their guns, link arms and sing Kumbaya?

What is it Mr. McCain? If we are to "win" this war, please tell us what it will look like so that we can know when it happens.
