    So a very important question is what do the Iraqi's feel about "The Surge". Is it helping to with the hearts and minds of the people we are sending our troops to die for? Do they believe it is helping?


    Somehow this does not seem to meet the criteria for success to me.

    If "seventy percent in the survey said they believe security has worsened where the added forces were sent, with another 11 percent saying the buildup has had no effect and similar numbers said security in other parts of the country has deteriorated and that overall economic and political conditions have declined", then where in hell did General Petraeus get his information from?? Did he even stop to ask Iraqis what they think? Sorry, stupid question. When has the right ever cared what the general population thinks.

    It appears the Bush.... er...... Petraeus Report is already beginning to fall apart. Another cruel absurdity is that it is a cause for celebration that Sunnis are turning to Americans for help in purging themselves of an upstart Al Qaeda movement in Iraq that would not exist if the United States had not invaded the country.
    This report just keeps getting more and more laughable.
