If the war supporters are forced into a position of pointing out how fast the basic utilities of that country are being rebuilt (after we destroyed them in the first place) -- if that's "progress" to them, then they are truly grasping at straws here.
Exactly, this is truly the fundamental question. To focus on the progress or lack thereof schools have made is to really become distracted with the real issue here.

I think there's actually a good explanation for this. In a sense, if the "surge" shows progress, then that only gives credence to those that say more troops are the only way to get the job done for a job that many Americans believe isn't worth it to begin with. And from there, it's certain that more lives will be lost in the process.

Either way, more Americans are going to be killed in an unjust "war" regardless if the surge works or not.
