  •  "Surge" was always domestic propaganda operation (8+ / 0-)

    "Teh SURGE!!!(tm)" per se involved, but was not really defined by, military considerations.

    The main goal of "Teh SURGE!!!(tm)" was to avert any possibility of changing the U.S.' ongoing occupation due to (1) the "Iraq Study Group" collection of elite opinion; and (2) the 2006 Congressional victories.

    To this end, the military was involved both to implement the escalation and Sunni payoffs ("change in strategy") and to assist the Bush Jr regime and its toadies' accusations that any voice demanding a change from perpetual occupation was anti-military, un-American, cowardly, pro-terrorist, and troop-hating.

    DO YOU ADMIT THAT THE SURGE IS WORKING?  DO YOU ADMIT THAT THE SURGE IS WORKING?  BUT YOU MUST ADMIT THAT THE SURGE IS WORKING!!!!

    To the extent that "Teh SURGE!!!(tm)" is defined as changing the conditions on the ground so as to change anything fundamental in Iraq, it could not succeed.

    To the extent that "Teh SURGE!!!(tm)" is defined as a domestic propaganda operation aimed at undermining the massing support in 2006 for a change from perpetual occupation, it was a blinding success and most Democratic leaders played along 100%.

        "CNN senior military analyst Air Force Maj. Gen. Donald Sheppard, says: "This is intra-Shia. This is not Sunni vs. Shia, this is not civil war, this is not sectarian violence, it's intra-Shia politics for control of the government." Yep, all those previous problems have been resolved, this is something new and it’s being dealt with. Uh-huh."

        "Teh Surge is working" crap needs to be responded to with, "DEfine Working?"  and "Define "intra-SHia" fighting?"  
        Because the last time I checked, If it was
        All AMercians fighting americans, then that's the definition of a Civil WAR!

        Oh yea... The AMerican Civil War, just a little "intra-AMerican politics" for control of the government.
        ..... MY ASS!!

        THis is all just

        Orwellian BUSHit!

        Trying to redefine "Civil WAR" with nice words to deceive the AMerican people.


        Shia fighting SHia for control of the government, IS A Civil WAR!!
