The Bloody Game of Whack-o-Mole Continues

This is what the warmongers won't tell you. There still isn't enough American troops to chase Al Quaida from Iraq. It's always one more offensive or one more operation and we'll have them on the ropes. Iraq now has close to a half-million man army with 5 years to train up to defend their country. Once again, the problem is not for lack of training--it is for lack of will and cohesion of the numerous fractured parts we call Iraq. Eight more US soldiers killed in the past two days.
I wonder if GW Bush will mention them tonight in his State of the Union screed. I kind of doubt it.
