Nice to see that four years after the mission was accomplished; after four years of occupation by the most advanced and best-trained military force on earth; after well over 3,000 U.S. troops have died, many more suffering serious injuries, and hundreds of thousands suffering serious and under-treated psychological trauma from their service; after uncounted billions of dollars spent by the most wealthy and powerful nation on the planet; and five months into the Surge, a top U.S. general estimates that the security forces have achieved firm control of almost half of Baghdad. Actually, not even almost half, but in the general vicinity of half, right? The low end of the vicinity, anyway. The fruit of four years of the occupation of Baghdad is control of about 40% of the city. Such an impressive feat! It speaks volumes about the competency and sound judgment of this administration, does it not?
For some stories, there is simply no better response than sarcasm.
