The Lose-Lose War

One hundred fifty Iraqi academics were kidnapped today in the heart of liberated Bagdhad by aggressors wearing police uniforms. No one knows what has been done to them. We say that we will support all efforts by the Iraqi government to bring the criminals to justice. We didn't say how we would do this. We have no way to do this.

Good dealmakers create win-win solutions. Mr. Bush likes to create win-lose solutions. He wins more when others lose. The result of his effort, though, is a lose-lose solution. The Iraqis have lost and so have we.

Perhaps win-win solutions are more stable than win-lose solutions.

Bullying fails the test.
