Coordinated Attack Kills 5 U.S. Soldiers in Iraq

Five more U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq. In the four-plus years that the Bush regime has occupied Iraq, there’™s never been a calendar quarter where U.S. deaths exceeded 100 in each month of the quarter – until now.

As U.S. lawmakers prepare for a two week 4th of July holiday, and as Iraqi lawmakers prepare for two months of vacation, the carnage continues unabated. And no one in either governing body appears to have the will or the way or the politically moral fortitude to say, ‘œENOUGH!!’.

The U.S. has less than 200,000 military personnel in the country. The ‘œinsurgents’ in Iraq apparently have unlimited resources in terms of manpower, weaponry, popular support, and (perhaps most importantly) time.

It doesn’™t take a math major to figure this thing out anymore. Complete U.S. withdrawal is no longer a matter of how, but of when. There is no ‘œwinning’ this thing.

I am almost despondent that wiser minds than my own can’™t seem to figure this out.
