Last Throe Update

This must be the progress we keep hearing about:

About 100 masked gunmen stormed a prison near the Iranian border Tuesday, cutting phone wires, freeing all the inmates and leaving behind a scene of devastation and carnage — 20 dead policemen, burned-out cars and a smoldering jailhouse.

Pretty sophisticated level of organization for a bunch of dead-enders.

The insurgency's strength, spiraling sectarian violence and the stalemate over forming a government in Iraq have led politicians and foreign policy experts to say Iraq is on the brink or perhaps in the midst of civil war.

Fortunately, we have our smartass Secretary of Defense to stipulate to us that an Iraqi civil war would not look like the American version. Seriously. The guy who is supposed to be coordinating this country's defense efforts uses that as a rejoinder to a perfectly sensible question.

I was particularly struck by the clip of Iyad Allawi yesterday, referring to the daily body count of "50 to 60". Now, do the math and extrapolate those numbers to an American-sized population, roughly twelve times that of the Iraqi. If there were two major sectarian groups in this country that were murdering 600-700 people per day, would we have to ask about whether or not there was a civil war in effect?

Of course we would. Our "leaders" would continue the pretense of "progress", their minions would continue to make wisecracks like it's some fucking joke, the retards who support them would continue their moronic braying, and the media would steadfastly refuse to hold any of them accountable for their actions and words.
