Iraq Spirals...12 Killed In Baghdad Bombings, Al Qaeda Captures Fallujah Police Station

Okay, Harry Reid, NOW you can say "we've lost" in Iraq - once you and Barack Hussein Obama officially took control of the War in Iraq, you lost it - Bush won the war, you lost it.

Iraq is spiralling and quite frankly, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Iranian Qods Force troops inside of Iraq within the next 30 to 60 days.

Oh well, what's just another country to fall into the hands of al Qaeda or the Iranians?  No big deal if you're Barack Hussein al-Obama.

The story comes from Times of India.

Bombs kill 12 in Baghdad, militants stage big attack near Falluja

BAGHDAD: Two car bombs killed 12 people in Baghdad on Tuesday and Sunni Muslim militants staged coordinated attacks near the western city of Falluja, destroying two tanks and capturing a police station, police said.

A suicide bomber in an explosives-laden fuel tanker blew it up under a highway bridge near Falluja, causing the bridge to collapse and destroying one of two army tanks parked on top. Gunmen then attacked and destroyed the second tank.

Simultaneously, dozens of militants attacked a police station in the nearby town of Saqlawiya, forcing the police manning it to surrender. Army helicopters later attacked the gunmen in the captured police station.

That's like saying Richard Nixon a Republican lost the Vietnam War, that Lyndon Johnson a Democrat started/escalated.

Intriguing thought process. Maybe there wouldn't be a war to lose at all. If there hadn't been war in the first place. Just a thought I guess. Maybe Nixon could have been spared the Paris Peace Accord if Johnson hadn't fabricated the Gulf of Tonkin incident. The same way Obama would be spared the ongoing crisis in Iraq if Bush hadn't fabricated WMD's.

Quagmires can be avoided by not stepping in them.

USA missed a great opportunity in October 2008. Too late now.
