Left would prefer defeat for America

The letter "Bush realizes that wars mean armies"

(Jan. 28) reinforces my view that many of the American left are dismayed that the "surge" has proven to be effective in curbing the violence in Iraq. What does it say about a group of people who appear to be disappointed that our armed forces are incurring less casualties? Sadly, there are many who believe that the only successful outcome in Iraq is an American defeat.
