i'm pretty sure everyone knows Gen. David Petraeus is giving a testimony right now. if you don't want to waste your time...it goes something like this...Petraeus will say things like we've made progress, Iraqi security is stepping up (yeah right), some areas of Iraq are extremely dangerous while others may not be as horrible, he'll praise all the Soldiers for their hard work and dedication. The Republicans will say things like, we can't pull out that would mean complete failure, al qaeda will take over Iraq and the Democrats will be the thorn in Petraeus’s side asking totally absurd questions like, are we safer as a nation now, is staying in Iraq worth losing more Soldiers, etc etc etc. so basically nothing will get accomplish. nothing changes. the President will go play golf. another Soldier will die, lose a leg or arm, another Soldier will be sent back over for the third time and return home even more mentally fucked up then before, Iraqi security will take naps or watch American troops do the job they are suppose to be doing...so don't worry everyone, life as we know it will continue on. so by this summer troops levels should return to "pre-surge" levels and after that who knows.
The best part of the testimony so far was a single man yelling “bring them home”…
“With no one speaking to us...So we are speaking up.” mliw.
