I say we declare the surge a success & leave immediately,
before it inevitably explodes, . . . . . again.
I don't like to see the Iraqis suffer through civil war,
but i like even the less of having both US forces AND the Iraqi people suffer through the inevitable.
At 3800+ US deaths, 1,000,000 Iraqi deaths, 1.6 Trillion dollars, i think the eventual(?), ever elusive 'success' a bit too rich for my blood.
take the temporary surge 'success' to retrieve our last remnants of sanity & exit quickly & swiftly.
I think one might agree unless one is one of the blood money profiteers or the murder happy psychos who love being an instigating part of any war.
Do you love ex-patriot Halliburton or the USA?
