Remember, in this war that people think we lost or are losing, it took us 5 years to lose 4000 troops. How long did it take for Iraq to lose 4000?
In what has become a regular ritual, a local newspaper has reported the death of a U.S. soldier in Iraq -- officially described by the military as a "noncombat" fatality -- as, in fact, a suicide.
The rate of suicides among military personnel in Iraq, who are suffering from multiple tours of duty, has surged in the past two years, as official reports (a new one today from RAND) show that about one in five vets are suffering from mental problems. I've tried to chronicle this phenomenon for almost five years.

pull the america hating head out of the sand.
We may not win but I'm not gonna sit here and say we are gonna lose just because someone says we will
It was a mess, and our conscripted Army didn't want to be there, not to mention the complete lack of support back home. Vietnam was lost in the same place that WWII was won. On the home front.
The forces that are trying to conquer our nation is much worse than Hitler, much worse than Stallion and all you can do is argue that America can not win.
You must remember that we didn't get this far without soldiers scarifying their life's for this country.
Millions have fallen for our rights to be individuals and to speak our minds
I'll disagree with all who think Ahmadinejad is right and that America or the world doesn't have a chance with Iran.
There's a reason and I don't know exactly why that America is looked up to and hated at the same time. We encourage freedom and that makes dictators mad! We encourage self religion and that makes religious fanatics mad. We encourage capitalism and that makes all the greedy rulers mad.
We've all made our mistakes but America is strong and the people have more passion and will power to succeed here than anywhere else on this world. If it wasn't so then America would be abandoned and lost forever. I don't see anyone leaving.

Sound like President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is trying to give the people confidence, motivation and national pride.
I’m sure this is all propaganda to the people of Iran. Russia has been doing some good coaching though from the looks of it. When you don’t have enough fire power what do you do, you act like you do. I believe that is what he is trying get across to the Iran people. A parade will always boost some confidence followed by a good BS speech. Sounds like he is expecting something to happen soon and needs too rally the people fast. This guy is beginning to sound a lot like the Saddam regime, I bet he has a few old clips of Saddam’s speeches. I can see it now . ( Wait …. back up; let’s use that, That seems to work good. How do you spell that again. Now lets have a parade everyone. )
Scared of Iran and Mr Dinnerjacket? Woopsydoo it's madness. The US military designed to fight the USSR, the Warsaw Pact and China simultaneously.... and you think Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan is going to defeat us. Bigs you're funny there. A bit over dramatic if I may say. If the US decides to take out Iran then it will happen. If the US decides to take the gloves off then it's gonna be real this time and no more PR. You remind me of all the posters who say 'the Iranians are a real proud people they aint gonna run away like the Arabs.' Lol that's a frequently heard thing here and it's hilarious. If China and Russia are given their share then Iran will be mushy peas before November and it's time to do with them what we did with the Nazis kids.........long term re education
