From My-Army-Guy on July 16

We had a lot going on the last day or so. NY Times visiting, lots of things happening, but nothing too interesting. Just busy work and operational stuff that happens all the time.

We're in a struggle right now to sell the concept of the surge and we're losing it horribly. Every time we put news about the surge out there it's countered by politicians who haven't been here saying it's not working. So it's frustrating to everyone, I think. We're literally kicking butt every day, clearing out insurgents left and right, but the question is what will happen after we've cleared them all out? Who's going to take over? Not the Iraqi Army or police. They can't handle it.
