Josh Marshall, commenting on a Slate piece by Fred Kaplan, sums up the Iraq Problem as well as can be:

Or, to put it more crisply, how do we wipe out al Qaida (and al Qaida-like groups) without generating so much bad blood in the Islamic world that the Islamic world keeps producing new al Qaidas faster than we can destroy them?

Of course it would be nice to have someone in the White House even capable of thinking in such terms.
