War in IRAQ gets worse

The new commander Lt. General Raymond Odierno has his work cut out for him as he tries to win the war against the Iraqi militants. General Odierno knows in a personal way the high cost of the war, not just in money, but in human lives. His son was injured in the war by having an arm ripped off and nearly dying.

When I predicted that we would invade Iraq and loe the war many said that I was wrong, that there was no reason for the US to invade Iraq. Now, thousands of lives later they can say it was so very "obvious" that we would lose. Still, I remember when Rumsfeld said we would be out in less than six months.
