Blogger Bryan Preston embeds in Iraq, and comes to some conclusions about the mistakes we've made there:
1. No plan for the post war period.
2. Leaving Iran alone.
3. Pullbacks and soft failures.
4. Iraqi elections held too early.
5. Misunderstanding the fundamentals.
6. Assuming Iraq will conform only to unreasonable expectations which are based on ignorance of counterinsurgency warfare.
7. Media misconduct and malpractice leading to flagging homefront morale.
People who actually care about this will read his complete article.  People who are content in their angry ignorance won't.

It's really, really not about Bush any more.
