What if the U.S. won the war?

This one is a little dated, but worth reading. The Investor's Business Daily, referring to an article in the London TimesOnline, says,
What would happen if the U.S. won a war but the media didn't tell the American public? Apparently, we have to rely on a British newspaper for the news that we've defeated the last remnants of al-Qaida in Iraq.

London's Sunday Times called it "the culmination of one of the most spectacular victories of the war on terror." A terrorist force that once numbered more than 12,000, with strongholds in the west and central regions of Iraq, has over two years been reduced to a mere 1,200 fighters, backed against the wall in the northern city of Mosul.
Perhaps President Bush was right all along. But watch. President Obama will get all the credit.

While I am certainly VERY delighted with this news, the skeptic in me wonders if our enemy's ranks appear depleted in Iraq, just because they have chosen to shift their fight to Afganistan. If we follow suit, and start beating them handily in Afganistan, then they shift back to Iraq? I hope this "theory" is wrong. But I definitely agree that if I am wrong on my scenario, Obama, and his court, will not hesitate to take all the credit that is (not) due! :-(
