So, if you're keeping score

In the WON column we have:
WWI
WWII
Grenada

In the LOST column we have:
'Nam (thanks Dems)


And the TIED column is:
Korea (thanks UN)
Kosovo

The reason I left Iraq off for now is that we really don't know what's going to happen over there.
I doubt it'll end up in the WIN column because Barack and the Liberals won't let it. Even if they wanted to- they just ideologically CAN'T let Bush have any credit.
Just look at the spin on this AP piece:

KHABARI CROSSING, Kuwait (AP) — The last U.S. soldiers rolled out of Iraq across the border into neighboring Kuwait at daybreak Sunday, whooping, fist bumping and hugging each other in a burst of joy and relief. Their convoy's exit marked the end of a bitterly divisive war that raged for nearly nine years and left Iraq shattered, with troubling questions lingering over whether the Arab nation will remain a steadfast U.S. ally.
Which is why it's up in the air right now, but my understand in of the muslim thinking is that it'll be aligning with Iran too soon.

...And since we're Libs, we want to make it sound like the country is a wasteland...
Many Iraqis, however, are nervous and uncertain about the future. Their relief at the end of Saddam, who was hanged on the last day of 2006, was tempered by a long and vicious war that was launched to find nonexistent weapons of mass destruction and nearly plunged the nation into full-scale sectarian civil war.


Some criticized the Americans for leaving behind a destroyed country with thousands of widows and orphans, a people deeply divided along sectarian lines and without rebuilding the devastated infrastructure.

Nice spin Yahoo picked for their story.
I REALLY wish we had a search engine with a conservative- or at least neutral- angle on things....

    That's a good idea and maybe Conservapedia should be approached with this.

  2. Without rebuilding the infrastructure? I thought that was a large part of what we WERE doing over the past eight years.

  3. We were.
    SeaBees have been their from the start rebuilding schools, bridges and roads.
    They've been building water and sewer plants where there never was any.

    ...Of course this is the last time they'll ever work as they were designed to, because next time something breaks because of lack of upkeep- it'll stay broken because I'n shalla.
