Great News! The Washington Post reports that the U.S. is talking about "speeding up " the withdrawal from Iraq. I must have missed the story on what schedule we are accelerating, but, what the hey. From what I can gather the reason is that the level of the insurgency , while getting more violent, is not increasing in numbers. And, as we are told, insurgencies need to increase to be successful. Boy these guys are good. Anyway, since the level is not going up the insurgency must be waning, which means we have succeeded and can leave.
Isn't that great. It is the last throes all over again but who cares. Let's just get out of there.
