The Antiwar Myth About Iraq Continued

Antiwar mythology about Iraq continues as the Lamestream Media refuses to get it right.

Worth noting is how the 2004-7 period of the Iraq war reflected the Army's absurd refusal to abandon its garrison force mentality and the disgraceful role of bureaucrat-general Eric Shinseki (see also this piece on Donald Rumsfeld and the generals who resisted him via outdated thinking) in fighting needed reform before the 2007 Surge finally forced the Army to get out of the garrison force and actively work with the locals to defeat enemy forces.
