All that happened from "the surge" was to cause the bad guys to move their war against America to Afghanistan. Remember? Things are heating up in Afghanistan. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what's happened here. Have yet another surge, this time in Afghanistan, and you'll see things heat up yet again in Iraq, or another country of the bad guy's choosing. Now we get to play even more hide and seek with these evil doers. And Bush's wish for an endless war will be fulfilled.
