Everything is just becoming hunky-dory:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the insurgency in Iraq is losing steam as a political force, even as Democratic congressmen warned Sunday that violence jeopardizes plans for withdrawing some troops.
Rice, in an article appearing on Time magazine’s Web site, argued against viewing the war solely through the rising death toll. More than 1,820 American troops have died in Iraq, at least 30 of them in the last week.
"It’s a lot easier to see the violence and suicide bombing than to see the rather quiet political progress that’s going on in parallel," Rice said.
Yeah, it’s a lot easier to see the violence and suicide bombings because both are so prevalent. I guess if you ignore the dead soldiers and the dead Iraqis, this whole thing has been a smashing success.
Okay, so she and Bush have lied and lied and lied about Iraq. But now, we should believe them.
I can’t help but wonder whether these people actually believe this fantasy world of their’s is real, or do they just think we’re all stupid enough to fall for it. (Of course, the scary part is, a lot of Americans do buy this crap.)
