But Gen P says things are looking up. Of course he also says we need to extend the Surge through next year [remember he is the one that planned THIS surge length] and that we will be there for years and years. But they are looking up.

Just remember, our Congress always takes August--and a lot of other weeks and months--off too! And things ARE looking up in Iraq--if one can believe two Brookings Institution liberals like Mike O'Hanlon and Ken Pollack in the NYTimes...

Yes, I am. I've learned a lot over the years. One of the things I've learned is that there is little help for people like you and elau. The kind of folks that don't have a clue, and never will....

Now you say you HAVE learned something in your years? Hard to pin you down when you flip-flop all over the place...

See, there you go, your reading comprehension is shot already.
My wife is a nurse, she tells me that there is help for you through prescription drugs. See you Doctor or Designo, I'm sure he can help you with your problem, unless your Jewish.

It would appear that you like to play the fool, that's fine if that's what you want to do. I don't feel like humoring you anymore, so if you intend on persueing this farther, you'll be doing it on your own.... That means you'll be playing with yourself.... some more.
