Iraq and WWII

I found the following intresting observation at the The Shadowland Journal Blog.

In response to the latest Shadowland column, about Kevin Tillman's scream of rage at the administration and its war, a reader in California who still clings to "stay the course" rhetoric asks,
"Would today's America have the fortitute[sic] to persevere in World War II?

"Of course the answer is yes.

But consider this:From the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 to final victory over Japan in August 1945, three years and eight months passed. The war was over.

From the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 to November 2006, three years and eight months will have passed. And there is no end to this war in sight. - C.D.

The war in Iraq is over. We won.

President George W. Bush told us so three years ago while posing
for the photo-op on the deck of the USS Lincoln in front of the
"Mission Accomplished" banner.

The battle for the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people is over.
We lost.

There is no way for us to repair the damage we have done. The
vast majority of the Iraqi people want us to leave Iraq--now!

Our occupation of Iraq is a dead-end road. When is the best time
to turn around or get off a dead-end road?

It seems to me that the answer is: As soon as possible--no matter
how far we have traveled down the dead-end road.
