The Quagmire of Fallujah

Quagmire is acquiring a new meaning. It used to mean "to be bogged down, as in quicksand, slowly sinking until dead." Exhibit A for the Left has, and apparently always will be, Vietnam.

But after all the left's use of the word, quagmire has come to mean any military campaign that, while initially difficult, becomes a success over time. One more required peice of the definition appears to be that while the going is difficult, the media must covers it obsessively, but the story must be covered less and less as the successes mount.

By this new definition, Fallujah stands as exhibit A of the word Quagmire.
