Planning for Victory

I'm reminded of the passage from Booby Woody's book when after "winning" in Afghanistan, Bush was supposed to have said something along the lines of "what now?" Things are not going well in Baghdad right now, as this scathing AP report makes clear, I won't claim to have omniscient knowledge of what's going on behind the scenes, but one does have to wonder whether they bothered to think this one through. If the war was going to be quickie, didn't they need to have some plan for afterwards? They really do seem to be making it up as they go.
