Kissinger's Advice for Bush

Maureen Dowd channels Henry Kissinger who popped up this week to tell Bush what he needed to do "win the war in Iraq":

He said Mr. Bush had only a few things to accomplish: train a real Iraqi Army that includes all religious and ethnic groups, make the Shiites stop hating the Sunnis and the Kurds stop hating everyone, and keep the Iranians from creating a theocratic dictatorship in Iraq. Oh, yeah, and a couple of other teensy little things: our troops have to defeat the vicious Iraq insurgency, and Mr. Bush needs to keep domestic support for the war.

Sounds so simple when you put it that way, especially stopping that hate thing. Too bad evidence shows that on most objective scales, Iraq is already in a civil war.

Why in the world would anyone in their right mind listen to Kissinger about anything?
