Comparing Plans for Quagmiristan

Bush: Steady as she goes, stay the course, stay till we win, make democracy happen, painting schools, winning the hearts and minds through overwhelming force. Now Watch this drive. Nothing to see here, move along

Kerry: We need to internationalize the peacekeeping force, putting more boots on the ground. We need to share the burdens and rewards of the reconstruction. Bring our troops home during his first term.
Involve the Iraqis in the reconstruction and get Halliburton and other war profiteering foxes out of the Iraqi Henhouse.

One plan deals solely with perception and the other with reality.
