WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is taking "very seriously" a secret intelligence report concluding that the U.S. military has fought to a stalemate in Iraq's western Anbar province as political conditions also worsen in the "epicenter" of the country's Sunni insurgency, a senior defense official said Monday.
The US of A is used to getting it's self out of trouble, and others along the way for that matter. Don't go and develop amnesia of history on me, I know better, and so should you. If the US Armed Forces were really put to the test, it may as well be WWIII. Because nothing short is going to compete.
"It is an important report. We've taken it very seriously," Edelman told a panel of the House of Representatives' Government Reform Committee. "This is an operational assessment by one very good intel officer," he said, adding that "a lot of us are looking at it very closely" and are seeking a further assessment on Anbar from top U.S. commanders in Iraq

O.K, your post here has confused me. The U.S is not fighting a conventional war, so refering to history i believe is not relevant. Unless you want to start talking about Vietnam, which is probably not a great example in "success".

Will they cut a deal with the devil, and negotiaite with the resistance, admitting defeat and guilt and pleading for a price to end the carnage?
