With President George Bush all but rejecting the findings of The Iraq Study Group’s report, we must accept the sad fact that we have lost the war in Iraq. The country is decimated, disorganized, and dangerous. As of this writing, 2,922 American soldiers have lost their lives.
Between 49,642 and 55,048 Iraqi citizens have lost their lives.
This is tragedy beyond comprehension.
We don’t even have a definition of what victory in Iraq might mean. The cause is lost.
ABC news reported tonight that Afghanistan is seeing a resurgence of the Taliban.
Well, consider this. If we lose in Afghanistan also, George Bush will be the first president in United States history to lose two wars.
Two, George. A man who can’t put two words together is on the verge of a uniquely infamous place in U.S. history.
