Iraq War: Quote of the Week

Zbigniew Brzezinski, News Hour, Jan. 11, 2007:
[T]he problem is not only military, not only political, it's also historical. There is such a thing as historical relevance.

The fact is, the American effort in Iraq is essentially a colonial effort. We're waging a colonial war. We live in the post-colonial era. This war cannot be won because it is simply out of sync with historical times.
