Here goes in trying to protect the Iraqi border from the influx of insurgents it doesnt look like we doing such a good job but then again we can't protect our border with Mexico the hole gets deeper everyday more death civilian & military more money spent an no end insight for a war we can't win. This is not about our service men & women they are only doing what they are told. Shock & Awe has turned into Shuck & Jive how do you stop someone that is willing to kill themself what is the deterrent? When Bush made the statement the major conflict is over he and his staff thought it was a cake walk now they are chocking on that cake. How many more lives is going to take before they admit a mistake was made or is pride standing in the way.

1. the insurgents are people fighting the american occupation of a muslim country. they are more than willing to give their lives for this cause.

2. personally, i have lost all respect for our service troops after reading so many negative reports about them.

3. don't expect to see bush leave iraq any time soon. he's dug himself in there and he has no plans on leaving regardless how unpopular the war becomes. also, don't expect the next president to leave iraq either. we will be in iraq for at least 10 years and will lose many many more troops in the duration....get used to it, because there is nothing you can do about it.

this is the "new america" you were promised by the republican right wing party. 51% of americans wanted it and now they got it.

Yeah, ain't democracy and capitalism great. Just what the world and Iraq needs.

There's no need to leave Iraq when the American taxpayer is paying the ticket price for corporations to rape and pillage. America has its foothold on the largest most easily accessible oilfields in the world, what with Saudi Arabia in line and fully controlled. They can draw their line in the sand in Iraq, they don't even have to go into Iran as their presence next door to Syria as well guarantees the security of Israel and the deterrent necessary to Russia, India and China. It is a buffer zone, much like the methods used by any superpower in history, which normally surround themselves with neutral friendly states to be the buffers and precurser indicators to rebellion and sedition. Not that Iran and Syria are friendly states, but they have to pay attention to the elephant next door. If Russia, China and India make a move, it is through Iran or Afghanistan, and America has its time required to prepare for invasion.

This is a war for resources and it hinges on who gets the power to enjoy the capitalist production ideals. Eventually oil and gas will be so costly as to restrict these emerging countries from competing with America as the dominant country, by way of controlling their resource capacity to produce goods.

This may be why there is so little progress in development of alternate energy sources, as it may open the market of these other countries, when they are no longer dependent on fossil fuels for power.

If China ever devises a cheap alternative, watch the dominos fall into place.
