How To Know We've Lost Iraq

Let's do the countdown:

10. When your daily news frequently includes an item like this: Reuters reports that

'Police found 56 bodies and a severed head in different parts of Baghdad over the last 24 hours, an Interior Ministry source said. The bodies showed signs of torture and bullet wounds.


Then you know you have lost in Iraq.

9. When 7 US GIs are announced dead on an ordinary day in Iraq, then you know you are not exactly winning.

8. When the Shiites, the primary beneficiaries of the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, think the US is too pro-Sunni, you know you have lost in Iraq.
