"Stay the course"

Because our current strategy, whatever it is, is working so well and you wouldn't want to mess it up. Don't let news stories likes these turn you into a defeatist:

"About 1,100 U.S. soldiers and Marines were wounded in Iraq during August, by far the highest combat injury toll for any month since the war began and an indication of the intensity of battles flaring in urban areas."


"In Iraq, the list of places from which American soldiers have either withdrawn or decided to visit only rarely is growing: Falluja, where a Taliban-like regime has imposed a rigid theocracy; Ramadi, where the Sunni insurgents appear to have the run of the city; and the holy Shiite cities of Karbala and Najaf to the south, where the Americans agreed last month to keep their distance from the sacred shrines of Ali and Hussein."

So Americans are spilling more blood and losing control of more and more territory. Perhaps we should take a break from demanding some specifics from John Kerry about his Iraq plan and start asking the War President (trademark) what exactly HIS plan is.
