    While the news out of Iraq continues to improve, even before all the additional troops get there, Murtha et al., are doing everything they can to ensure failure. Perhaps he's been underestimated, in that he does have a very clear idea of what the military is and isn't capable of, depending on politics. I can't help but wonder if his vision on the politics is as clear? It took over 2 decades for the country to pull out of the problems with Vietnam, I don't think we have that long to deal with national therapy:

    Nine US troops killed this weekend, six of them on Monday, some seventy Iraqis killed in car bombings just since Sunday, and "...news out of Iraq continues to improve..." Just what alternate reality are you living in, dear lady?

    We lost more troops on D Day then the four years of Iraq. Libs would have bben a hoot as the troops were fight at Normandy.

    Libs would have been screaming to run off the beaches and talk to Hitler about a ceasefire

    Look around Bully. Gee, there was a war, folks died. There has never been such a war with so few killed. Now one may argue that it shouldn't be fought, but don't use this weekend's numbers to make your case.

    Nice try to falsely appeal to emotion. You've already made it clear that no one is allowed to die in a war or else its a bad idea. This shows incredibly naivety of what we face and what the prices for failure are.

    If you have it your way, we will be out of Iraq. and the region will turn into a blood bath the likes of which the world has never seen and may not recover.
