Self Delusion

This is what self-delusion looks like:
Having expended the lives of 2,500 soldiers already, will we not stick it out another year or two -- risking perhaps another 800-1,000 U.S. deaths -- in order to crush the terrorists, and to establish a stable government in Iraq?--Robert Stacy McCain

Is their any conceivable reason to hope that in another year or two we would be closer, rather than further away from "stable government in Iraq"? At least he's not Tom Friedman.
