So How's It Going In Iraq?

Let's ask the General. LATimes (07.15.06):
"It seemed like a routine question, one that military leaders involved in prosecuting the war in Iraq must ask themselves with some regularity: Is the U.S. winning? But for Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, the Army chief of staff known for his straight-shooting bluntness, it proved a hard one to answer." Los Angeles Times: Is U.S. Winning? Army Chief Is at a Loss
"During a Capitol Hill briefing for an audience mostly of congressional aides, Schoomaker paused for more than 10 seconds after he was asked the question — lips pursed and brow furrowed...". The General's answer speaks volumes. "'I think I would answer that by telling you I don't think we're losing.'"
