Read the whole thing...other than distorting well publicised reports of a slightly higher than normal suicide rate, this guy...the Editor in Chief of this news outlet in Oman, simply writes down his own skewed vision of the world and passes it on to his Arab readers as journalism. There isn't one interview with an American Soldier...there isn't one shred of evidence to support any of this.

Of course I suppose he couldn't get away with it if the readers didn't allow him to...
The soldiers, in fact, are comparing the current situation with the rosy picture given at the start of the war. We all know President George W. Bush told them that the whole operation would take less than three months. He gave the impression that the operation would be as simple and enjoyable as embarking on a tourist trip. But the ground realities have turned out to be quite different; rosy dreams have vanished. And the US soldiers have found themselves in a trap from which there is little or no hope of escape. It is quite understandable why they are down, depressed and demoralized. The soldiers know that an end to their plight is not in sight and the future looks bleak.
