The Iraq surge looks like an unholy mess

By Diane Silver

Three months into the operation, The New York Times says the surge is falling far short of its goal, American troops are playing "whack a mole" chasing Sunni and Shiite fighters from here to there and back again, and some Iraqi police are planting the bombs that are blowing up our soldiers.

If one is a thoughtful blogger one is supposed to, as they say, "add value" to the report of a news item. Honestly, I don't know what to say, except what a horrible mess. People are bleeding, being torn apart, dying over this. Is there an end? Can this end in any way that isn't wrong?
