"You've got to deal with the reality on the ground. The reality on the ground is, we've made major progress, we've still got a lot of work to do."Dude, you're the one not dealing with reality. How many bombed out cars and dead people littered all over Iraqi streets constitute a failure? And how about today's bitch fight in the Iraqi parliament? This is why Americans are dying over there to support this continuing ugly behavior by the Iraqi leaders? In the meantime more innocents died in the streets.
In five or 10 years, when we look back on this, I wonder what we will see? Insane men running our government and people who didn't stop them. Or will we find our collective conscious and stop this madness somehow?
