The prosecution would like to separate the motive from the act. Well, that's like trying to take the core from an apple without breaking the skin.

David Reinhard writes in yesterday's Big O-

Of course, it's early yet. The surge of U.S. troops won't be complete until late spring, and the enemy will react and have his bloody say. Of course, Qanbar is invested in the crackdown's success. But these and other signs of progress suggest this new "last chance" strategy has a chance of success. Good news, unless you're somehow invested in the new strategy's failure. That is, if you can even bring yourself to acknowledge there is a new strategy.

Oh sure there's a new strategy and it's working great, Dave-

7 U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq, 4 in one incident.

That's our David Reinhard, trying to make a majority of his readers out to be the villain.

Good thing nobody listens to him (except us esoteric news junkies) or it might hurt his paper's circulation.

Sorry, Davey, your sarcasm that anybody who has a problem w/bush & co's so-called new 'last chance' strategy" is "invested in...failure" is off-the mark.

I'm invested in AMERICA - my family friends, neighbors, co-workers, and my community at large.

Why can't Bush & Co be? Hmmm, I think I'll let someone intimately involved in just the same type of wars speak for himself:

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and losses in lives."
