    A Permanent Occupation?

    The War Goes Ever On

    By PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS

    Is the Iraq war to become a permanent feature?

    The war persists despite the opposition of a majority of Americans and Iraqis.

    The war persists despite warnings from US generals that the stress is breaking the US Army.

    The war persists despite its enormous cost in red ink and dependence on foreign loans.

    The war persists despite its total failure.

    The war persists despite the known fact that it was based on Bush administration lies and deception.

    President Bush's latest delusion--the surge--has not increased security. The surge has been accompanied by new records of daily Iraqi civilian casualties, such as the 312 Iraqis killed and 305 wounded on April 18. Recently, US commanding general David Petraeus said that Iraqis would just have to learn to live with daily bombing attacks. Petraeus promises Iraqis decades of violence when he says, "Iraq is going to have to learn--as did Northern Ireland--to live with some degree of sensational attacks."

    For the past two years polls of the US public have shown that a majority of Americans believe that it was a mistake to invade Iraq.

    Polls of Iraqis show that large majorities support attacks on US troops and want US forces withdrawn from their country.
