I honestly think we do not want to lose the war.....but I think it is a lost cause. We will lose this war whenever we leave Iraq.....today or 10 years from now. The desire has to be within the Iraqi people. We have to remember that Iraq was basically 3 different countries at war with one another for centuries and that only after WWI under the British it was made into one country. The people there been fighting one another since about 700 AD. It ain't gonna work.
