How to Lose a War

Ralph Peters made his reputation as one of the most original thinkers in the U.S. Army. Predictably, some of his ideas aggravated the brass, so he retired as a Lieutenant Colonel. Today, Peters is an author and a military analyst for the New York Post. In a column published today,Peters looks at the Democrats "surrender" strategy and its deadly consequences.

Meanwhile, Professor Mac Owens of the Naval War College has a stinging rebuke to Congressman Jack Murtha's calls for an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. Like Murtha, Owens is a former Marine infantry commander in Vietnam. However, when Professor Owens looks at Iraq, he sees progress being made, while Jack Murtha can only find quagmire. Read Owens's column and decide who's right.
