Clinton Ahlquist, Jeffrey Avery, Dace Balcon, Ryan Baum, Scott Brown, Duncan Crookston, Christopher DeGiovine, Dustin Gould, Joshua Hager, Alun Howells, Jason LaFleur, Wade Oglesby, Andrew Olmsted and Andrew Perkins. All of these military personnel were killing in Iraq since Jan. 1 2007. They are part of the group of 4,000 Americans killed in the invasion and occupation of Iraq since hostilities began in 2003.
President Bush and the 30% of Americans who still support him talk about victory in Iraq. What conditions characterize “victory”? Because I don’t see how you can win an occupation. Are there any conditions that Republicans can identify that would indicate to them it’s time to bring our troops back home? If not, the troops wi’ll never achieve “victory”. The Republicans’ intent is to keep American troops there forever. Is that what Americans want? November will tell us the answer.
