Probably more likely is emergence of a more Islamacist resistance.  That's
certainly what the reappeared Osama is hoping for.  As for your comments,
Henry, I myself have tried to put forward the "Support the [Iraqi] Troops"
concept -- like "Victory to the NLF".  However, as you know I'm sure, that's
not where all but a tiny minority of "hardcore" leftists are coming from.  I
wrote an essay last week more or less along these lines and critical of
liberal currents in the anti-war movement but didn't get to put it up on my
Web site for one reason or another.  Now it seems dated.  In any case, I'll
send it along to the List in my next.
