My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Well, This Is Good News

CentCom released some documents today that show that we're actually winning in Iraq. At least, that's the view of our enemy:

At the same time, the Americans and the Government were able to absorb our painful blows, sustain them, compensate their losses with new replacements, and follow strategic plans which allowed them in the past few years to take control of Baghdad as well as other areas one after the other. That is why every year is worse than the previous year as far as the Mujahidin’s control and influence over Baghdad. . .

6. The mujahidin do not have any stored weapons and ammunition in their possession in Baghdad, particularly rockets, such as C5K Katyosha or bomber or mortars which we realized their importance and shortage in Baghdad. That was due to lack of check and balance, and proper follow-ups. . .

Northern al-Karkh groups are estimated at 40 mujahid, so is the Southern Karkh. They could double that number if necessary. Al-Rassafah groups in general is estimated at 30 mujahidin as I was informed by the commander of al-Rassafah. These are very small numbers compared to the tens of thousands of the enemy troops. How can we increase these numbers?

I'm thinking this is . . .wait, right? . . . Yeah, this is GOOD NEWS. You know? We're winning.

Couple this with Tom Macinerny's view from Iraq from last month, you should think that the worm is beginning to turn.

I just hope the conventional wisdom hasn't hardened to the point of irretrievability.
