    I've been hearing for four years from Bush adminstration officials, Bush generals, and Bush fans about the great "progress" we're making.

    Game over. Nobody who is remotely connected with bush has any credibility anymore.

    You haven't a clue how the Military works or the State Department do you?

    Get of your high horse, and don’t’ strut around like you know how everything works. You’ve been wrong from day one on Iraq. Your credibility on iraq is zero. Its about the same as Sean Hannity’s.

    BTW to answer your question: Here’s what the former head of both the State Dept. and the Miltary says about your war in Iraq…he knows about five thousand percent more about how State and the Military work, than you do:

    Let's see weve overthrown a Government, turned the insurgent tribes against AQ in Iraq, Captured the top AQ official in Iraq. Killed and captured thousands of AQ terrorists but your right we haven't accomplished anything. Weve done more in the 6 months after the 9/11 attacks to fight Terrorism then Bill Clinton did in 8 years in office. You would just let your hatred of a Republican President blind you to that.

    Nope and it's a bad idea at this point. We have accomplished a lot and continue to accomplish more and more everyday.

    why do you think that Iraqi sunnis and shiites, who have hated one another for 1200 years and who have NEVER been able to peacefully coexist in a democracy, will start wanting to now?

    They can do it without violence and that is what we need to get them to realize.
