Are they winning or losing?

In US media now-a-days, there's an ongoing discussion as to whether US (a) has won (b) is winning (c) will win (d) has lost (e) is losing (f) will lose (g) cannot afford to lose (h) will never be able to win the war in Iraq. Here's the answer from Riverbend who'd have some idea as to whats actually happening there.
Let me clear it up for any moron with lingering doubts: It’s worse. It’s over. You lost. You lost the day your tanks rolled into Baghdad to the cheers of your imported, American-trained monkeys. You lost every single family whose home your soldiers violated. You lost every sane, red-blooded Iraqi when the Abu Ghraib pictures came out and verified your atrocities behind prison walls as well as the ones we see in our streets. You lost when you brought murderers, looters, gangsters and militia heads to power and hailed them as Iraq’s first democratic government. You lost when a gruesome execution was dubbed your biggest accomplishment. You lost the respect and reputation you once had. You lost more than 3000 troops. That is what you lost America. I hope the oil, at least, made it worthwhile.
Doesn't sound like (a), (b) or (c) does it?

  1. Monkeys? Didn't some guy in Virginia get into trouble by calling someone that?

    Baghdad Burning has been a stunning propaganda piece for a long, long, time; very influential. It be studied by those who study war propaganda and effectiveness for years to come. Waris hell, and urban warfare is worse than hell.

    Loved your post; you quickly sum up the reports as to the state of the "winning" "losing" situation.
