Give it time?

WaPo reports that General John Abizaid was "asked point-blank whether the United States is winning in Iraq, Abizaid replied: 'Given unlimited time and unlimited support, we're winning the war.'"

What the hell does that mean? How much time are we talking about here? And what unlimited support is he refering to? There are according to an AP report today, already "147,000 U.S. troops in Iraq - up more than 20,000 from June." Things aren't getting any better. In fact, now that we're going after the Shiites, we're gettign drawn into an Iraqi Intifada.

AP reports:

"Shiite militias are encouraging children - some as young as 6 or 7 - to hurl stones and gasoline bombs at U.S. convoys, hoping to lure American troops into ambushes or provoke them into shooting back, U.S. troops say."
