betray us petraeus

Okay, more troops were sent to Iraq even before that poisonous toad in the oval office announced the "surge" in January. Troops already in Iraq have had their duty extended, creating an overlap and a much larger number of soldiers in Iraq than even the surge was intended to supply. Now Petraeus abandons responsibility to the troops and tells us the surge hasn't even started? And that he won't be able to make a definitive assessment of effectiveness even in September? Meanwhile, May's the 3d deadliest month in the entire misbegotten war and there's no sign of things getting better for the Iraqis either. From Think Progress, though it just makes me think hopeless.

Glad to see feisty Belle is back. Things must be looking up a bit. Nothing is going to change with these death merchants until the elections, I am trying to check my hostility a bit so I don't blow a gasket. It is extremely difficult to do under present circumstances! especially when I have so much anger towards this administration.
