31 Days in Iraq; Visual Map; while new Majority Leader John Boehner says....

Visual map shows what the last 31 days in Iraq looks like; IED explosions, car bombs, mortar attacks, suicide bombings; killed. It's worth a look and brief study for more realistic view than what is reported in our daily mainstream news; and it certainly doesn't line up with the President, Commander-in-Chief's rosey assessment of situation in Iraq, even while he introduces the 'long war' concept.

And on the 'long war', from the memory hole; Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld said

""It's not knowable what a war or conflict like that is going to cost.

You don't know if it's going to last two days or two weeks or two months. It's certainly not going to last two years, but it's going to cost money,'' Donald Rumsfeld, late 2002.

And this:
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said that he does not think Iraq will be a "long war." But he declined to give a timeline or predict what the U.S. troop level will be at the end of the year.

I'm not too reassured either that the new Majority Leader, John Boehner, has this to say about Iraq (video link) " It may not benefit our generation, but for our kids and theirs, this maybe the greatest gift we give them."
