In One Eye

This is a story that's been around for the last couple of days, although it hasn't gotten nearly the emphasis it deserves.
The most senior officer in the US armed forces, General Richard Myers, says Iraqi insurgents have lost none of their capacity to stage attacks.

The chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff said there were 50 to 60 attacks a day, the same level as one year ago.
In other words, Iraq really is a quagmire since hundreds of American service personnel and mercenaries have died in the last year with no apparent positive result.

My suspicion is that once the various subterfuges regarding godless judges and Social Security tours subside, the story that Americans have once again died in vain in an invasion that shouldn't have been undertaken might get some legs.
