Pentagon: Iraqi Violence Still Rising

Violence in Iraq, as measured by casualties among troops and civilians, has edged higher despite the U.S.-led security push in Baghdad, the Pentagon told Congress on Wednesday.
In its required quarterly report on security, political and economic developments in Iraq, covering the February-May period, the Pentagon also raised questions about Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's ability to fulfill a pledge made in January to prohibit political interference in security operations and to allow no safe havens for sectarian militias.
What more does this administration need to see to make them admit that this war is lost? General Petraeus recently stated that the surge was going well. Is this what he describes as going well?

The Democrats have funded this war through September. The United States has been put in a no win situation in Iraq. If we leave the violence will most certainly get worse but staying is not an option. This war is draining our treasury and saddling future generations with debt. Who wins in this situation? This is the Bush legacy.
