Losing The War We Made(up)

Battle for Baghdad Boils Down to Neighborhoods - New York Times:
Sending in additional troops is an implicit acknowledgment of what every Iraqi in Baghdad already knows: Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki’s original Baghdad security plan has failed.

In the past two weeks, more Iraqi civilians have been killed than have died in Lebanon and Israel.

The additional American forces sent here will include units equipped with Stryker armored vehicles, military police and, essentially, what is left of the American military’s reserve in Kuwait.
Sounds like we're losing this war, too, considering that it's always been worse than we're told. And BushCo won't send more troops over from here because that would be admitting they made (yet another) mistake. And in BushCoLand, admitting a mistake is much worse than making a mistake. Doing something reasonable about it is even worse than that.
