Is it possible for Bush to kill all the Iraqis before he leaves office?
I was just checking out ICC. Everyday the U.S. military reports that it killed or captured X amount of "insurgents" or al qaeda members. And sometimes U.S. forces make mistakes and kill civilians. Taking into account all the people who have fled Iraq, how many more people can there be to kill, imprison, and subjugate in Iraq? It's baffling.

3. I wonder if that is his definition of "Victory" over there?
I personally cannot figure out what the hell anyone means when they say we cannot leave Iraq before a clear "victory" has been won.
Never heard anyone actually go into any specific details of exactly what a "victory" would entail.

6. We can win militarily if we killed every male between 14 and 70
That should wipe out all resistance fighters and leave women and children behind. Of course, who wants to go that far?

8. I don't see how anyone..
can possibly know who's who. Between private contractors/private security/private military...one census from 2006 puts the number at about 100,000, and that was just those contracts handed out by the U.S government.

The Brits have their own gig going...according to this article from 2004

9. No - They're Spread All Over The World These Days
But before, back then, then he could have done it.
