May 1: five years of nation building

Today marks the fifth anniversary of our attempt to rebuild Iraq-- or to help Iraq rebuild itself.

We won "the war" in six weeks, but our efforts to rebuild a nation have been, not surprisingly, much more challenging.

May God protect our troops; may our leaders work to bring them home within the next year; and may Iraq be successful in establishing a stable government for a free and prosperous people.
