The Iraq Disaster - 300 people dead in 10 days

300 human lives lost. Men, women and children.

There are people on the right that don't think 300 human lives are important. They are convinced that misinformation and blind allegiance to Bush's policies will do the trick in Iraq. Meanwhile Iraqis pay a horrific price for our failed policies.

America is a pragmatic country. Our citizens strongly believe things that don't work should be corrected. The "stay the course" rhetoric from the right is irresponsible and un-American.

For the life of me I cannot understand why the president is not outlining a plan on how to deal with the Insurgents.

You would think the White House would be holding emergency meetings with the newly formed Iraqi government, top military brass, the House, the Senate, the FBI, CIA, and NSF brainstorming on how to get this problem under control.

Maybe they are working behind the scense. Undoubtedly something is going on.

But I feel the President would do better with the public and our soldiers if he were to openly admit we have a problem and we need to solve.

I think also just admitting that the problems in Iraq are far more serious than anticipated would help as well.

That is what pisses me off more than anything else.

We are talking about human lives here. Saving lives should be the priority, not politics.

Yet the RNC and the president continue to play politics and the MSM continue to allow the White House to get away with it by not reporting the cold hard facts day in and day out.

Whoa, Joe...At least NeoConCrusher is oen of the few who truly cares.

Actually I have a few suggestions (as if anyone is going to listen).

One: Seal off the borders. This was done partially to the Afghan border last year. This would stop the constant influx of insurgents coming in and going out. Common sense. **I think the problem is that our intelligence and military officers are stuck in the state of "quick and swift war."

Two: Reinstate the draft. This is the only way to insure that there will be enough American soldiers to protect the borders, patrol and aid in fighting.

Three: Better logistical and ariel support. We do not have enough ariel support even though bombing are done by ariel attacks.

Four: Get a new military officer in Afghanistan.

Five: Get intel officials who will not let their personal matters and the reckless demands of military officials get in the way of providing good intelligence.

Six: Stop leaking information about the war: who are we catching, where are we are catching them, how are we catching them, do not reveal the existence of inside sources. This is common sense, why would let your enemy know your position. Remember Geraldo Rivera? Yea, enough said.

Seven: Build a coalition and reinstate truth into American intelligence reform. The Bush Administration can use the same rhetoric that they used to con countries into believing our intel hoax in the first place, but instead, this will go for something new.

Eight: To insure the proper training of Afghan and Iraqi forces, ship them to Kuwait and train them there. This way full and proper training can take place without interferences from the war. This will also help alleviate tension and anxiety, because the soldiers would have gone through rigorous training and excercises. This is way better instead of the shake-and-bake forces who receive 3 weeks of police training.

Nine: Release Biweekly regional reports and include the number of dead civilians, hotspots that terrorists/insurgents are attracted to.

Ten: Convince the CIA, FBI, and The NSA and just the army to hire second or first generation immigrants to be interpreters and help sort out policy.

Those are my ten reasons. They are feasible.
