The Surge Was Not Successful

James Vega at the Democratic Strategist highlights why the Surge really hasn’t succeeded, as I’ve said all along.

Let’s not also forget just today’s bloody violence.

Female bombers struck Kurdish political protesters in Kirkuk and Shiite pilgrims in Baghdad on Monday morning, leaving at least 61 people dead and 238 wounded in one of the bloodiest sequences of attacks in Iraq this year.

It’s just not looking good. And after five and a half years of our soldiers being there, it should seem clear to everybody that their presence simply does not solve the problem, and is most certainly not worth the cost to have them there. It is time to leave Iraq.
