We're Outnumbered

If Americans really want to know why we continue to fail in Iraq, The Peach suggests they consider this article from Al Jazeera. According to the head of Iraqi intelligence, General Muhammad Abd Allah Shahwani, there are approximately 240,000 active fighters and supporters of the resistance against the Americans. The number far exceeds any figure given by the United States, who continue to place the number at around 25,000. When asked if anti-Americans were now taking control of Iraq, Shahwani responed, "I would say they aren't losing."

If Gen. Shahwani's numbers are correct, that means that U.S. forces are outnumbered by nearly 100,000. This leaves The Peach asking, who's running this circus?
