BTW, perhaps the "Islam is a hate group" might explain why the bulk of the forces doing the bulk of the fighting, and dying, on our side in this war are Muslims Iraqis, Afghanis and Pakistanis?
This is the problem with trying to fight a Counter Insurgency with the Conventional Military. Counter Insurgency is as much political as military. The Conventional Military forces simply are not trained to deal with the limited ROE necessary in such a mission. The Conventional military is a broadsword and the mission requires a rapier.
BTW, here is the raw data from Iraq. The Junk Media is simply LYING about Iraq. The Insurgency in Iraq has failed. In over three year and we see the same steady low levels of violence. They have not been able to evolve beyond stage 1 of Guerrilla Warfare. The Iraqi Counter Insurgency efforts are rapidly maturing and growing. Simply look at the raw data.
Perhaps people should simply quit listening to them. Listening to the American "News" media on Iraq is like listening to Radio Berlin in June 1942 to find out how World War 2 is going.
