Whither Iraq ?

Wretchard's latest Iraq post "Both Sides Now" -- over at Belmont Club has plenty of good arguments on either side of the Iraq Fiasco/Not Fiasco issue. Be sure to read the many thoughtful comments following.
I have some thoughts on the state of things in Iraq, but I am not ready to open that particular box just yet. Read Wretchard, and have a look at Professor Kenneth Pollack's testimony in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, here; in particular Pollack's discussion, citing Andrew Krepinevich's The Army and Vietnam, of the necessity of operating so as to deny guerrillas access to the population versus the temptation to employ one's forces in "whack-a-mole" guerrilla hunts.
