    However, I imagine liberals will ignore. Or hope it eventually fails.

    Doesn't change the fact that most everyone told Bush he needed far more troops when he went into Iraq, but didn't listen. Guess those people he ignored for years knew what they were talking about.

    Great news...Bush is now guaranteed to justify continuing the surge all the way into...


    Iran.
     
  4. It's "working", in certain places, in Baghdad. It is not working in Iraq generally. And Afghanistan is falling apart. And all the administration wants to do is kick all the cans down the road until 2009.
    Other than that, nice job, ABC.

    Partisan bullshit aside, this is pretty good news, no?

    Maybe that's why the bombings seem to have moved out of town for the last month or so.

    Tony, ABC's next story on the video player discusses an island in the Pacific that's shrinking and only has 50 years left because of global warming.
     
  12. It is good news, as far as it goes, which isn't very far at all. It doesn't go, for example, to Tal Afar, which the administration mentioned a while back as a shining example of how the previous surge worked.

    Asking proven incompetents to accomplish the manifestly impossible is not a sound basis for national policy.
