This week in Iraq

The violence has continued to escalate. I am not a foreign policy wonk I don't pretend to be and I don't want to be,that is what Juan Cole is for: Foreign Policy. It is just becoming apparent that the violence is getting worse and worse each week, more and more Iraqis are dying and yet the attitude here at home from most Americans is that we are winning this war. We are doing something wrong if most American's think we are winning a war where people are dying everyday at the hands of the opposition. Just because the American body count isn't going up by the hundreds this week does not mean this war is going well. The disconnect the American people have demonstrated with this war seems completely in line with the disconnect it must have taken 51% of them to vote for its architects though.
