Elections Aside, There's A War Going On

As the nation has been caught up in the daily drama of the unexpected excitement generated by this year's political campaigns, something seems to be missing.

So Far, So Good...

Something is amiss. Something is going on. I fear reprisal. I fear a renewed insurgency. But if it never comes -- so much the better. I do not think for a second that the "surge," the lauded military "build-up," has actually done anything to alter things in Iraq (except to increase our troop... Sign in to see full entry.

50,000 American Troops To Stay In Iraq Indefinitely

The president and the Pentagon unveiled plans that would result in the drawdown of American troops in Iraq, if things continue going the way they are now, to a stable and continuous presence of 50,000 to be stationed there indefinitely.

Surge Working Or Are We Seeing Another Lull Before An Insurgency Storm?

We've seen it before.

The Coalition Of Americans And A Couple Of Other Guys

The "Coalition of the willing", as Dubya once euphemistically called the handful of countries that went to Iraq with the United States (well, actually, after we took the country), has become a shadow of its former self, if you can even get a shadow from an anorexic.

With Everything We Know About Iraq, What Do We Believe?

With all the doubletalk, the official speak, the misdirection, the outright lies, the corruption, the failed policies given fresh spin, the pure ideology clouding the issues, the demagoguery, the pontificating and the rhetoric, how is one to figure out the swirling cauldron of crap that is Iraq?

They're asking for $190 Billion More To Fight This War

So far, we're almost at $800 Billion, once they approve this new amount.
