Do these numbers really justify what "the mission" and "victory" in Iraq are all about? After all, virtually nobody knows what the mission and victory is about in Iraq and how it is claimed by the President that it protects our security here at home. Like Keith Olbermann mentioned, the President wants American troops to stay in Iraq indefinitely, because Bush most likely wants war with Iraq just to go to war, and the longer the war continues, the more that corporations like Halliburton profiteer from it. It's sad how our tax dollars are being used that way, where a President doesn't listen to the American people but instead just "stays the course" in a continuing failed war policy. In light of this, Joe Biden has the most comprehensive Iraq war strategy, and his campaign is worth funding in order to cap an ongoing war.
