  •  Bushco controls the success agenda (4.00)
    Bushco announces that holding an election (any kind of election) will be a success. They hold the election and announce a success. Next they will define another event in Iraq as a measure of success. One success follows another.

    Meanwhile, in the reality-based world, more and more of Iraq is slipping into anarchy and large stretches of Baghdad are effectively out of the control of occupation forces. Bushco can manufacture success after success, but the fate of Iraq will be decided by what people there are willing to live and die for.

    •  Yeah but reality is closing in (none)
      This election, if it helps Bush politically, won't do so for long, and they probably know that.  This is really nothing more than a hail mary pass to end the inurgency.  It won't.

      To his virtues be very kind, to his vices, very blind.
