Hosted by

Defeat in war can have "unintended, seemingly inexplicable consequences." Upset defeats can be especially damaging to a nation's psyche. Thirty years ago, what came to be called Vietnam Syndrome has divided America for decades, with profound consequences for its politics and conduct of foreign policy. Will "Iraq Syndrome" have similar and longer-lasting consequences? What about US prestige and effectiveness in the rest of the world?
