    The truth about Bush's "surge".... from people who were really there and not from people who got the administration "tour"...

    And before y'all whine that it's from the times, it's an op-ed by some very brave soldiers.

    I'd say that what they described is pretty much in line with what common sense would dictate and what our own state department SAID it would be like there were we to destabilize the country by ousting Saddam.

    Ahem... excuse me... this isn't anything bout anyone "parrot[ing] the dem party line". These guys fought. One of them was actually shot in battle after and is here recovering from head wounds. Whether one agrees with them or not, they deserve the respect of being heard. They have no agenda. And what they wrote has been supported by other miitary men, current and former, who have said they are absolutely correct about what we're facing there.

    I don't believe anyone who comes with an administration seal of good housekeeping. Wouldn't even if their tongues were notarized.

    I'm actually more interested, though, in discussing the reality that these men are discussing. What parts of what they said do you disbelieve?
