The Long War Three Years In: Just the Links (and a sentence)

Over the past week, progressive bloggers have been commemorating the third anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War (a war that Bush has finally acknowledged he will leave brewing for "future presidents," meaning we'll be passing this sordid anniversary with our young men and women still in Iraq at *least* three more times (assuming Bush has his way here until then and assuming that this intent is not overcome by facts on the ground there), but then again, we're still in Germany, Japan, Korea and a number of other countries decades after we finished the applicable war, and I would not underestimate the political courage it would take for a future President of either party to actually pull the trigger on withdrawal):
