That's the win, loss, tie record of the US in its wars. More if you count the Indian Wars and the other smaller skirmishes over the two centuries of the country's existence.
Stephen Walt has a great article up point out again-how the US will ultimately end up the loser in Iraq, My only question is when we stop blaming ourselves and put much of the blame on the Iraqis-being Arabs after all and therefore worthless-instead of ourselves. Our problem was that we failed to recognize how worthless they really were.
But some people tried to tell us.
The tragedy of wasted lives and continuing damage to the land of my birth will live on for years to come.
Thanks George and Don-thanks a lot! Losing is still losing.
