Field commanders: Iraq war is lost!

Military leaders in reported to the Pentagon that there is no way to stem the rising tide of violence in Iraq and that all hopes of winning the Iraq war are completely lost.

"We are in trouble in Iraq," says retired army general Barry McCaffrey. "Our forces can't sustain this pace, and I'm afraid the American people are walking away from this war."

They also reported that the murder of Iraqi civilians at Haditha is "just the tip of the iceberg" with battle fatigue and stress building amongst the ranks of the U.S. soldiers.

As the resistance mounts and daily violence escalates, the overstressed U.S. units are unable to control the mounting violence and conclusions escalate that the war is lost.
