"Surge!"

Not working, obviously: “Two car bombs exploded in an outdoor market in Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least 56 people and injuring scores in the deadliest attack since U.S. and Iraqi forces began a major security push around the capital last week.” Note that this, like the vast majority of bombing attacks, came in a Shiite neighborhood (as did a less deadly attack in Sadr City) which raises the question of why driving Muqtada al-Sadr temporarily out of the country and screaming about Iranian support of Shiite militias is supposed to help stabilize Iraq.
