Progress being made!
The key to success in Iraq is to have a government that's willing to deal with the elements there that are trying to prevent this young democracy from succeeding.Time it took for Bush's adventure in Iraq to kill 1,000 American service members: 17 months, 15 days.
We want to help them succeed...
I'm making good progress toward coming up with a plan that we think will help us achieve our objective. As I think about this plan I'm always -- have our troops in mind. There's nobody more important in this global war on terror than the men and women who wear the uniform, and their families.
Time it took for another 1,000 to die: 13 months, 19 days.
Today we hit the 3,000 mark, 14 months, 5 days after the last such mark.
