As far as I can tell, Wesley Clark’s plan to win the war in Iraq makes sense. I don’t say that it will work, or that it is the optimal plan; how would I know?
But as far as I can tell from reading it and the comments on it, it more or less parses, and people who understand the situation and the choices we face can read it without giggling. That’s a big advantage over anything else now on the table.
Maybe the next time he does one of those dumb debates, Clark ought to respond to the first silly question by saying, “You know, that’s an uncommonly silly question, so I don’t think I’m going to answer it. Instead, let me say how we ought to win the war in Iraq,” and then give the thirty-second version of the plan.
