In memorial for former U.S. President Gerald R. Ford, who died today, who rarely gets the credit for ending our involvement in the Vietnam War (it seems to go to disgraced former President Richard M. Nixon, even though the fall of Saigon happened after he left office), I give you Professor Juan Cole's "Top Ten Myths about Iraq 2006".

Coming in at #1 with, er, a bullet:
1. Myth number one is that the United States "can still win" in Iraq.

Read it and weep.
