10,000 innocent iraqi civilians - dead.
An undisclosed number of iraqi conscripts, most serving because their familes would be killed if they didn't - dead.
360 US troops - dead, hidden from the press and buried without any offical representative from the white house in attendance.
Saddam Hussein - still alive.
Iraq - now effectively US property.

Insiders know full well that George Bush has virtually no control of the Iraq war. Should he even try to wrest the wheel from Cheney and the cabinet selected for him he is rebuffed. For the few projects he is entrusted, like strong arming Congress to make the billions for Iraq "no strings attached," Bush overplays his hand with the obvious frustration of the odd man out.
Yes kids, George is not in charge of much. The DOD answers to Cheney. The Presidency is now like a cruise ship in the regard that there is one captain for public display at dinner and functions and another captain in charge of the actual navigation and running the ship.
This led to a Bush tantrum and a despondancy during the war that some of you may remember (marked by his absence), and undoubtedly could happen again. Should W's ego be seriously injured by those really in charge, the result could be catastrophic if it not caught in time by his handlers.
When Chris Matthews reports that this schism of the presidency is scary - it is not that the MIC shadow govenrment has not had its influence run through every presidency since Truman but because it is bolder than ever before without a complimenting conscience or temperate wisdom.
I believe we will see George get run over by the machine he thought he commanded - but meanwhile the Diebold voting machines are still programmed to re-elect Bush.
