    The change in tactics that began when 'the surge' was announced, have been underway nearly from the beginning. While violence is still unacceptable, it seems that the impact is being felt where it matters:

    How are things in Iraq?

    Well, let's examine the broader picture. The U.S. military escalation has made no different whatsoever. There are still more militia defending Iraq than occupying it. An increasing number of Americans continue to die. The Bush administration continues not to care.
    The more Americans that end up dead or wounded, the more the Bush apologists look the other way. It's your kids, not theirs.

    Well hot dog! You have inside intel on exactly how many "militia" are operating in Iraq, maybe you know their disposition....I hope you are planning on sharing that info with the US military!

    Omar lives in Baghdad. The Mudville Gazette has several sites that are 'Arab'.

    You are kidding, right? I suppose you are not; which says a whole lot about you.

    When we start rescueing the kidnapped, beaten, shot, tortured, somethings must be going right:
