This from the BBC News website….
US ‘not winning conflict in Iraq’
US Defence Secretary nominee Robert Gates has told a Senate committee that the US is not winning the war in Iraq
Well, gosh. That must have come as a huge surprise to everyone, huh? Mind you, he also called for a broad bipartisan agreement on how to fight war on terror, so what does he know, eh?
He also said he “would do his utmost to avoid chaos in Iraq”.
Ummmm… Bit late now, Bobby…
