Gates says U.S. isn't winning Iraq war

Gates, Bush's nominee for secretary of defense said yesterday that he didn't think we are currently winning in Iraq. Some say that this puts him at odds with the President. Gates later said that we aren't winning or losing at this point. Bush has said that he isn't at all pleased with the progress we are making at this point; obviously, he would like to see more progress. I'm sure that if I were in his shoes I would too. Bush has put an immense amount of energy into Iraq. I doubt that anyone can say that nothing good has come from it either. While many challenges have arisen and there is much still to accomplish, much ground has been gained, both in the war on terror, and in our hope to bring some semblance of peace to the Middle East.

I pray that President Bush will have wisdom and that God's hand would guide him as he continues to serve our country in such a difficult and strenuous position.

Thank you and God bless you President Bush for your hard work.
