CORRECTION
 
A recent article discussed incorrectly the winning strategy of United States forces in Iraq as refusing to engage the enemy in favor of low-intensity conflict, knowing the enemy would eventually have to withdraw. In fact, this was the winning strategy of United States forces in the American Revolution. We apologize for any confusion caused by our mistake.
