Athlete's Foot
As of yesterday, many opponents of the war now find themselves in an awkward situation.

Or so says Chien Wen, below. However, this depends entirely on your reasons for opposing the war. It is circular reasoning to claim that the conclusion of the war negates the premises on which it was opposed. If I opposed the war on the grounds that I thought it was, say, unnecessary or unwise to undertake at this specific time, for you to claim that some positive outcome of the war defeats my argument does not follow. More clarity later (maybe) if I have time.
