oh really teribus, so they won and can go home?
youre kidding yourself.
Everyone knows they've lost, including BUsh, but hes determined to pass on the problem to the next administration. The so-called surge has done nothing as expected despite Petraus' report (did anyone expect him to say anything else). The so-called success with the Sunni SHeiks in Anbar had nothing to do with the surge -as they realize they will have to deal with the shiites after the US pulls out.
And Petraeus predicted that the surge can wind down early in 08
- of course it will, they dont have anymore troops and its time for many to go..
The Democrats wont insist on a withdrawal until Bush is gone anyway, why give up the one stick they have against the republicans..
