WASHINGTON The war in Iraq has become "a major debacle" and the outcome "is in doubt" despite improvements in security from the buildup in U.S. forces, according to a highly critical study published Thursday by the Pentagon's premier military educational institute.
The report released by the National Defense University raises fresh doubts about President Bush 's projections of a U.S. victory in Iraq just a week after Bush announced that he was suspending U.S. troop reductions.
I have to wonder what are the white house's criteria for declaring "victory" in Iraq at this point? More half-hearted declarations of "improvement" from their puppet Petreaus?
The fact that it took a year and 30,000 troops just to partially secure one section of one city in a nation that we've been officially occupying for all of 6 years now is proof enough to the rest of the world that we've lost - so when the are we going to admit it to ourselves and get the hell out? Another 4,000 American deaths from now?
Nothing will decay a person or a nation more thoroughly than being hung up on a lost cause. Russia's watching with a grin as we chase our tails in the middle east, trying our damndest to re-enact the USSR's Afghanistan failure of the 80's. And who can blame them for being amused? - look where it got the Soviets!
And China and Europe and anyone else who has power gains to make with our dropping down the list.
They have already seen our dollar shrink in a huge way.
imeo it's having GW complete his term with people still thinking the war is winnable...and then his replacement will end up looking like a loser in having to clean the mess up.l.
That is the plan.
Let the democrats take the guff for the mess.
Republicans break it and make the dems fix it and then blame them for the cost of fixing it.
What a frigin idiot...
