Glenn Reynolds has a tabletop wargame-type list of victory conditions for the current Iraqi war. The short-term conditions for Allied victory seem overwhelmingly likely to be met. The long-term conditions don’t seem as likely, but still within the realm of the possible if we don’t drop the ball. All I know is that using victory conditions such as these in Vicotry Games’ PACIFIC WAR, I was able to win the battle of Pearl Harbor six times out of seven–as the US player. We can win it all if we want to bad enough and follow through.
