I follow the news on Iraq closely, and blog about it almost daily, and I have to say that your summary of the situation seems totally on-target.

Thank you for saying it so clearly, and let's hope the violence continues to drop.

Yes, you are brave to be where nobody wants to be. Yes, Lets hope for a cure for cancer and an end to global warming as well. Unfortunately, both of those will come before an end or even a significant drop of the violence in Iraq. We should have left immediately after the War ...occupation is foolish period. I support the troops but feel bad because they shouldn't be in harms way right now in Iraq, Afghanistan, yes. Iraq, NO. When I look at the facts and the lies that the Bush administration dishes out daily to mislead the American people...it really angers me. They have destroyed the reputation and well being of this great country... I can barely afford toilet paper or gas for a week... oh wait, I can use the dollar bills in my pocket for toilet paper. What a shame...what a shamble.Prison for Bush and Cheney is justifiable and would redeem this Country in the eyes of the World.

Supporters of the "Surge" like to take credit for the relative decrease of violence in Iraq. However the relationship between cause and effect is not at all clear.

It seems to me the same folks who were planting bombs and attacking our military last month could still be doing the same this month if they wanted to.

I hope things work out, but the only way I see it happening is if we leave. Stay safe.

Do any of you have an education beyond a third grader? Support the troops...who the hell do you think your kidding? Iraq has been is caos for decades. It took real president to go in and try to turn it around and it will take some time to make it work. Look at our evolution of democracy..oh wait, I think that part of history came after 3rd grade....CIVIL WAR 100,000's died as well as the revolutionary war. Maybe the French should have stayed home.
Can we American's ever remember anything beyond a day or two. I am still waiting for someone to tell me what the actual lies were. THERE WERE NONE SO GET OVER IT.
I am more proud to be an American now more then ever. How great a feeling to expand democracy in the middle east. To think we were here when it started. Great Job president Bush!!!!

Your writing style is a little off, and in some of your recent posts there are quite a few grammatical and even spelling errors. I'm assuming it's because you're stressed out...because you're in Baghdad...
