How you know, really know, that Iraq is screwed up.

There are no links for this, because it's from I guess is technically "a source." More accurately, a friend who has connecitons at the Pentagon and Quantico.


After the four security advisors were killed in Fallujah, the White House ordered the Marines to attack Fallujah in retaliation. The Marines, from sergeants on the ground to the Commandant himself, said "Bad idea. We need more equipment." They were ordered in anyway due to political considerations.


When the Commandant of the Marines is opposed to an idea, there are only two people who can override him: The Secretary of Defense or the President. So either Rumsfeld or Bush overrode the concerns of the Marines and sent them into Fallujah under-equipped.


So they went. And they kicked ass. In fact, the Marines kicked so much ass that three days later they received another order to pull back. Again, due to political considerations. It was too violent and looked too bad press-wise for the White House to stomach.


So the President and his staff are interfering with miltary decisions on the ground. Gosh, that isn't anything like Vietnam...


So there is that. And apparently, there are shouting matches almost daily at the Pentagon between the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Rumsfeld. The JCS and the White House are at odds at how to proceed in Iraq. The JCS are advising to "abandon the cause," (i.e., pull out) because they simply are not getting proper support. Of course, the White House disagrees with this


And oh yes, apparently we are running out of troops. So how will we find the men to continue the occupation.... (*cough* draft *cough*)


And, as an amateur military historian, what I found most disturbing, was that two words are getting a lot of play these days in the Pentagon: "Germany" and "Russia". If you don't know much about World War Two, read up on the Wehrmacht's invasion of Russia in 1941. It's sobering to hear that comparison, especially since we are the "Germany" in this scenario. But man, is it ever apt.


So this is what Iraq is devolving into. Insurgents control entire regions of Iraq. Reconstruction money isn't being spent at all. The White House is micro-managing military decisions, when they aren't ignoring them completely. Our troops levels are nearly maxed out.


....


THIS is the war on terror, Mr. President? The hell it is! It's a boondoggle, a quagmire, a hellhole and a disaster. You are sacrificing the brave men and women who have made the choice to put country ahead of self on the altar of your self-delusion. Our best and bravest are dying in the desert for what? A Neo-Con holy war?


You had this thing won in Afgahnistan! Bin Laden was cornered, al Qaeda was in shambles, Zaquari was stuck in Pakistan. And you chucked it out the window to pursue a shadow.


You are a farce and a fraud, Mr. President. And if there is a God in heaven, you will lose this November.
