Five Years of War in Iraq

A few months ago I noticed someone wearing a T-shirt with this emblazoned on the front: "My Country invaded Iraq and all I got was this lousy $3/gal. gas." The price needs to be updated, but the general sentiment is still valid. The war in Iraq has taken a horrific toll in Iraqi and American lives, with no appreciable benefit to the Iraqi or the American people. We desperately need to change course in Iraq, yet we're still stuck deep in the quagmire. This is the foremost reason McSame must not win the next election-- his solution is to keep doing the same thing, while hoping for a better result. He should instead listen to the growing chorus of retired military leaders, like General Batiste, who are fed up with our current Iraq policy.
