How's the Surge Going? (April 07)Let's check in monthly to see how Bush's surge is going.
John McCain thinks this surge is going very well.
McCain, appearing on NBC’s Today show yesterday from Orlando, Florida, said the war “was badly mismanaged. But there are signs of progress everywhere. I am confident that given the opportunity, we can have success.There may be signs of progress but not "everywhere"... the death and suffering remains horrific.
It's too early to see trends but it seems like the Iraq military is taking the biggest hit in this effort.
Two possibilities come to mine: maybe it's because they are are being forced to fight more; or perhaps the insurgents are killing them to send a lethal message to stay at home.
