Surge Success? 220 US Service Men and Women Have Died in Iraq in 2008.
Over $70 Billion flushed down the Iraq toilet. $70 Billion to War Profiteers. $70 Billion stolen from the next generation's education, infrastructure and economy.

220 families missing a loved one. 220 US citizens buried in their prime for an Illegal War. 220 killed for lies. Just this year. 4125 since the War Criminals started this Illegal War.

Don't talk to me about the "surge" being a success. The only "success" in Iraq has been the war profiteers running with the US Treasury, Anti-American Recruitment, and Big Oil is back.

Fuck you, John Mccain. And, fuck you, War Crimes Bush. And fuck this war that you each own.

2. How many Iraqis are dead, maimed or dispossessed?
That may be the real test of how successful the surge is for the white house and McInsane.

5. Those are hard numbers to get.
Over a million killed.

Over 4 million displaced.

Countless wounded.

Millions of Orphans.

3. yes, and the whole point of the surge was political stability and independence from us

edit to say - well, that's what it SHOULD have been. But given the "no we can't leave" we hear now, the original purpose is suspect.

4. We won't know if anything worked until 5 years after we are gone
from there.

6. I doubt anything will be corrected until we are 5 years out of there.
As long as we are there, it will be broken.
