Nice to see you have seen the light and disagree with yourself now.

A trenchant and incisive argument, which clearly points out the mistake in my logic.

Once again, a liberal chooses not to simply argue the issue.

The serious flaws which always wreck Brandon's attempts to argue his point of view arise from his habit of arguing from what constitutes logic at his house, rather than from the facts of the situation. In fact, deaths of American and English troops are declining, and have been over the last year, while deaths of civilians in Iraq have soared. The argument that a failure to support the Putz in Chief on Pennsylvania Avenue endangers our troops is without any foundation in demonstrable fact.

In the period March 20, 2003 through May 31, 2003 (declared by the Shrub and his Forty Theives of Baghdad to be the end of major combat), there were 173 "Coalition" deaths, an average of just over 4 per day.

In the period June 1, 2004 through June 28, 2004, there were 803 Coalition deaths, an average of just under two per day.

In the period June 29, 2004 through January 30, 2005, there were 631 Coalition deaths, an average of just under three per day. (This was the period in which the Marines fought a prolonged engagement in Falluja against Sunni insurgents).

In the period January 31, 2005 through December 13, 2005, there were 746 Coalition deaths, an average of less than two and one half per day.

In the period December 14, 2005 through October 13, 2006, there were 649 Coalition deaths, an average of just over two per day.

Source at Iraq Coalition Casualty Count, based on Department of Defense figures.

During this same period of time, the Shrub's approval rating has plummeted, and public criticism of his handling of the war has grown. The thesis that criticism of the administration endangers the troops in Iraq is not supported by the available data.

Hey, I'm not the one sniveling, er... intimating rather, in a semi-coherent fashion that if only we'd all drink the Kool-Aid and hop on the administration bandwagon instead of daring to criticize their immoral and needless war of choice, that we'd be well on the road to victory in Iraq.

Maybe you could be more clear if you extricated your head from your nether regions. Just a thought...
