Someone Forgot

To to tell the guys responsible for attacking the Green Zone with 20 mortars that the surge has been an enormous success. Similarly with whoever planted the homemade bomb in southern Baghdad that killed four American soldiers. I hope things manage to stay on roughly this plateau until through the election and when we get a chance to start bringing the troops home, but I think you’ve got to fear that as spring turns to summer and we can’t maintain the full-size surge deployment that violence is going to keep crawling back up.
