I bet if you've been checking out the headlines, what you've seen is "GATES SAYS US NOT WINNING IN IRAQ!!!!! QUAGMIRE! VIET NAM! OH, THE HUMANITY!"
When in fact, he said we're neither winning nor losing. Gosh, what media bias?
By the way, since the American Communists will be taking power next January, you can expect more of the same, tired, recycled bullshit from them, only this time thrown with greater force since they've proven they can win with it. I don't know if this country can stand two years of anti-American communists at the helm. I guess we'll find out.
