The surge sure worked, didn’t it?
I’m going to go ahead and speculate that it wasn’t “better” for the 900 troops that were killed in 2007. But, hey, what do I know?
Sure, the trend is a positive thing, but the object of the “surge” wasn’t to reduce U.S. casualties, as I understood it, so it (in and of itself) is hardly a measure of whether it’s “working”.
