VDH talks in circles; film at 11

Victor Davis Hanson on America's Shittiest Websitetm:
Are we supposed to think that after 20 months a president is responsible for his own record (e.g., Bush need not be credited for his lonely, but critical support for the surge that allowed the withdrawal),
A few sentences later:
“Turning a page” is no more wise than promising a withdrawal target date. If Anbar breaks out tomorrow in violence, surely we will turn back a page to offer at least air support, if not more, to Iraqi forces. The terrorists know that as well as we do.
So, if I follow this correctly, the surge worked and withdrawal means Bush Was Right and We Won, but it isn't wise to start promising withdrawals because unstable areas of the country could conceivably erupt in violence, like, tomorrow.
