The Iraq Debacle

Four years into the war in Iraq and today we learn from the AP that the Iraqi government has not met ANY of the benchmarks that were set for them in conjunction with our "Surge" and the $10 billion a month we're spending there. I feel for those who have lost family members in this misadventure as their loss will be multiplied many times over as they come to realize the senselessness of the entire Iraq debacle. The rest of us can only imagine what good could have been done with the fantastic amount of money that Bush has squandered on the Iraq war. As even Republican senators begin jumping ship over Iraq, we can only wonder how many more lives will be lost before we get out, as we most surely will.
