3. How can they claim the 'surge;' worked when the 30,00 troops are still there?
If the 30,000 were able to come home and the violence continued to stay low, if US. troops continued to not lose as many then and only then can anyone say the fucking surge worked!

bring in 100 cops to quell violence, it works - 100 cops leave and the violence picks up again. do you get it?
