Spike in Casualties, Degrading Morale, Baffled US Commanders: The Only Solution Is Dialog…

You will never get rid of the insurgency in Iraq, there will just be more and more and more, you cannot defeat them

(Shookhran to Greg und Danke zu RV)

The NRO's W. Thomas Smith Jr agrees:

Surprise attacks in supposedly secure areas. A spike in casualties. A few baffled American commanders. Suspicions of degrading morale within some units. Outright refusal to carry out lawful orders in others. Troops stretched too thin. Blame heaped on planners and those said to be responsible for unreliable intelligence.

Sound familiar?

as an opportunity for us and not a disaster"
