Yon: We won in Iraq.

From Michael Yon, the single best commentator on military affairs in Iraq:
But by my estimation, the Iraq War is over. We won. Which means the Iraqi people won.
He's got some stats (in a Powerpoint document) to back it up.

But he's a bit gloomier on Afghanistan, where "we clearly are losing." On the upside, though, he concludes that "if we could turn things around in [Iraq], we might be able to do the same in Afghanistan."
