9 Soliders Can’t Tell You How Well McCain’s Escalation is Working
There was a surge in the Iraq War yesterday, a surge of death.
First, a bomb blew up in a book market in Baghdad, killing 38 people and wounding 105. Then, the bodies of 30 people shot to death were found in Baghdad. Several pilgrims were killed while travelling to a religious event in Kerbala. Nine Americans were also killed in two separate attacks.
This surge in death is taking place in the middle of the implementation of the Bush-McCain policy of escalating the Iraq War. So, how did George W. Bush and John McCain react?
They issued a lot of statements, about other subjects. John McCain issued three press releases announcing the addition of supporters for his presidential campaign in New Jersey, as well as the creation of a Michigan finance team and Southeastern finance chair for his campaign. George W. Bush talked about Latin America.
White House spokesman Tony Snow did say, however, that there are “a lot of encouraging signs” in Iraq.
How well is the Bush-McCain escalation of the Iraq War working? Every day, there are more people on the ground in Iraq who can’t tell us about any progress they’re seeing, because they’re dead.
