  1. Tim,
    The surge has worked – check out the death levels from Sept. ‘o7 onwards. In fact, the US and Iraqi governments are planning to keep about 50,000 US in Iraq, in permanent bases.

  2. ^^^Maybe so-just not sure what point is being made by the flag over Arlington: honor or leave?
    As for Jackson’s cover of “Stay”-nice play on the question. But I prefer the ’61 original version.
