I don't know how anyone can possibly say we are 'losing' the war in Iraq. The Iraqi war has been AMAZING. Although sometimes falling below expectations, look at it relative to every single other war that has ever been fought. We have lost less than 2000 soliders, an AMAZINGLY low number. We took out the sitting government in a matter of months, and have already moved far in establishing a new police and military force and a democratic governement. US officials have very little involvement in, and are certainly not 'rigging' the election. The voting places will be monitored by Iraqi forces, with American men on high alert in surrounding areas. It's funny that with all we have accomplished, you have to resort to denying the legitimacy of the Iraqi run election. Sad.
