U.S. general says Iraqi rebels getting stronger

In a week that has already seen five more U.S. combat deaths and the wounding of 41 soldiers, the commander of military forces in Iraq indicated Thursday that resistance to the occupying troops was strengthening and warned Americans to brace for more casualties.

Which should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. People who have had their countries invaded generally do fight back.

I have a better idea. Withdraw and let the Iraqis — now’s here’s a concept — run their own country. Why are we there?
